Our much loved Fingerless Gloves by Pene Durston in super soft Possum/Silk/Merino blend are back again this winter.
These gloves are small batch, and hand dyed in Pene's kitchen at the back of her store, Cottage Industry.
These medium length cuff fingerless gloves are made from possum down, silk and merino yarn spun in New Zealand. Possum fibre is hollow and has both lightweight and insulating.
These gloves are made from yarn with 20-40% possum down content.
Penelope uses a Japanese lycra yarn to give the gloves stretch and return and they fit a wide range of hand sizes.
As the colours are hand dyed they can vary slightly from batch to batch. Click the drop down menu to make your selection, or visit our store to hand pick the colour you'd like.
Fibre: Silk, Merino & Possum*
One size fits most adult hands.
The medium size has a ribbed wrist cuff that is roughly 9cm.
Please note, some do appear smaller/larger than others. This is due to the lycra fibre. Both sizes are the same fit, it's just the lycra yarn that makes them apear to be different sizes.
*Possum down is harvested from culled feral possums. Since being introduced into New Zealand in the 1800s from Australia the possum has caused a huge amount of damage to the native floral and fauna of New Zealand, eating the eggs of ground laying birds and having no natural predators to keep them in check. the culling is backed by conservation groups.
Designed by craft queen, Penelope Durston.
Proudly made in Melbourne.
