Description - Irmelin
Designed to follow you - Handmade softness
Irmelin is hand-made Fairtrade knitwear from Bolivia, made of 100% alpaca wool. These beautiful, knitted warmers can be worn as ankle or wrist warmers – perfect for yoga, bar training and meditation, or to keep your wrists and hands warm when you’re out walking or cycling.
Irmelin is mainly knitted from post-production, leftover yarns. Patty is the woman in charge of the group of women who knit our Irmelin knitted warmers.
Each piece is meticulously knitted by women from La Paz. Creating these knitted garments gives them the means to support their families.
We work with Bolivian women on these beautiful pieces of craftsmanship, and by buying or pre-ordering a knitted garment made in Bolivia, you can make a huge difference to women fighting a daily battle to improve life for themselves and their families. Each of the hand-knitted beauties also carries a hang-tag bearing the name of the person who knitted it, so you can see whose life you’ve impacted while you enjoy these delectable hand-knitted products.
All items are made from 100% alpaca wool from the highlands of Bolivia. The wool is processed and prepared locally.
We are proud of and grateful for our collaboration with these Bolivian women.
