Fingerless gloves are a must-have for cold-weather accessorizing, and this rich navy blue style will be the perfect complement to your winter outerwear (though we've been known to wear them indoors on chilly days too!). Alpaca yarn makes these handknit gloves naturally warm, hypoallergenic, breathable and water repellent. It is also a biodegradable fibre that is renewable.
