Hand knitted Irmelin

The popular hand knitted Irmelin style is back in stock 

Irmelin are the popular and wonderful wrist and ancle warmers that are hand-knitted in Bolivia. The softest alpaca wool in a gorgeous pattern, perfect for chilly spring mornings. Each item is meticulously made by village women from La Paz. By producing knits for you they are able to support their families and themselves.
 
The Irmelin style is from our collection of handmade Fairtrade knit from Bolivia, made from 100% alpaca wool. These beautiful knit warmers can be used as an ankle or wrist warmer - perfect for yoga, barre and meditation or to keep your wrists and hands warm when walking or biking.

We work with the female Bolivian artisans in creating beautiful pieces of handwork, and by buying or pre-ordering a style you can make a huge difference in the lives of women who are each day fighting to make a better life for themselves and their families. On each of the handknitted beauties is a hang tag attached, revealing to you the name of the knitter so you can see exactly whose life you have made a difference in, while enjoying the lovely styles.
