All of our woolen socks, mittens and gloves etc. are hand knit by a Women’s Co-Op. We have been working with these women for over 20 years. The wool comes from New Zealand due to a lack of suitable wool in Nepal or India. The women receive the raw wool and clean, card, spin and dye the wool. The wool is then knit into socks, hats, gloves, mitts, scarves and sweaters. These export quality products are correctly sized and designed for western tastes. The garments are machine washable in cool or warm water, and dried flat (not in dryer).
