These handmade alpaca gloves (called “Pixel”) by Shupaca Alpaca are as warm as they are beautiful! They’re made with lots of stretch to comfortably fit most adult hands. But perhaps most importantly, they’re super warm to keep you cozy all winter long. These unisex alpaca fleece gloves come in various colours to match your style.
Skilled indigenous makers weave these gloves by hand in Ecuador, just as they’ve woven alpaca fibres for centuries. They receive a fair wage for their work, and you can rest assured that no alpacas were harmed in the making of these beautiful mittens! Alpacas are revered animals in the region, and their welfare is essential to the locals, as their fur is a crucial source of income year after year. The shearing helps to keep the alpacas comfortable in the warmer months while also providing a beautiful raw material with which the makers can earn a decent wage.
Available in two gorgeous colour palettes, these minimalist knit gloves will go perfectly with whatever other winter wear you have! You can choose between an eggplant heather colour scheme and a blue heather colour scheme.
The fairly neutral colour palettes make these mitts appropriate for everyone, regardless of gender. We find that these gloves are especially popular with men.
Fairly traded textiles and accessories make a real difference to farmers and workers in the Global South, so be sure to choose ethical brands to make an impact!
