Our classic diamond cable leg warmers in undyed medium grey. 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.

the way in which the colour grey is created by mixing white and black wool together has resulted in 3 different beautiful grey colourways, a medium grey, brown grey and a charcoal. 

STORY

 

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, the fresh off-white and a few different shades of grey, which are achieved by mixing natural black with off-white. An ode to the natural variation found in the local breed of sheep in Himachal Pradesh.
