Hand Knit Gloves

There are two pairs of hand knit, wool, Sanquhar gloves for sale in my Etsy shop. One red/white pair and one black/white pair!

The gloves measure approximately 6 1/2 inches from tip of middle finger to bottom of palm (not including wrist), by approximately 3 3/4 inches width of palm. Measurements are taken from the glove laid flat (not with hand inside). Because it's a knit, the gloves are quite stretchy.

The gloves are knit in the Duke style of the Sanquhar pattern. The wrists have a cute little knitted bow (traditionally the wearers initials would be knit here).

The yarn is a lovely, hand dyed, merino lambs wool from France. The wool company is Renaissance Dying. And they use natural plant based dyes.

These would sure make for a special Christmas gift for a lucky lady in your life ...

Yes! The wool and needles are all very tiny. But I love making intricate things.
I've made 12 pairs of these gloves so far, and I don't intend to stop anytime soon!
