These genuine lambskin gloves are New Zealand made locally in South Canterbury by skilled glove makers working from home. The lambskins are 'slink' skin, the skin from stillborn lambs. Each glove is attractively handstitched and bears the mark of an indiviudal craftsperson. These leather or suede finished gloves are soft and ultra comfortable to wear and can be worn in a range of environments. Although showerpoof they still allow the skin to breathe. Choose the suede or the nappa (leather) outer you desire whilst the inside is soft naturally curly lambswool which may be left curly or brushed smooth. To ascertain your glove size measure right around your hand across your knuckles. The measurement you get (in inches) will match with the size of the gloves you require, eg if your hand measurement is 7 1/2 inches then your glove size will be 7 1/2. Cleaning instructions are included with each pair of gloves.
