Diamond Cable Legwarmers - Handspun Wool - Dark Brown
Adding product to your cart
Our classic diamond cable leg warmers in a rich dark brown. Great with leggings or jeans, pull them up or wear slouched. Slightly boot cut, they'll stretch nicely down over your fave boots. Thick and cozy for cold weather wanderings and coffee dates in town.
Each pair of leg warmers is crafted by hand by the artisan women of Kullvi WHIMS in Naggar, Himachal Pradesh. We've incorporated a rustic natural desi wool from the region's indigenous Gaddi sheep breed. You will find beautiful variation in yarn thickness and colour in these handmade pieces, making each pair unique.
One of the first samples we received from our artisan partners in early 2019. Designed by Neema, we loved them right away, and they became one of the very first designs we ordered.
We've developed the pattern into the perfect legwarmer, featuring the texture of cable knit stitches and shades of our undyed sheep's wool - browns with rich flecks of rust, warm off-white and a few different shades of grey, which are achieved by mixing natural black wool with off-white. An ode to the natural variation found in the local breed of sheep in Himachal Pradesh.
Handwash in cool water, lay flat to dry in shade. Do not agitate. For more information, visit our care page.
All of our garments come in a protective muslin bag, stitched by the women of Kruti, in the village of Mulshi, Maharashtra. Kruti, a stitching unit run by Anubhuti Social Foundation, provides employment opportunities to women in rural communities, by implementing training programs in tailoring.
