These genuine lambskin gloves are made locally in South Canterbury, New Zealand, by skilled glove makers working from home. Lambskin (slink skin) is obtained from the skin of stillborn lambs and it produces mittens and gloves that are durable and ultra comfortable to wear. Each handstitched mitten bears the mark of an indiviudal craftsperson. These leather mittens are soft and can be worn in a range of environments. Whilst they are showerpoof, they also allow the skin to breathe. They have the leather to the outside and the soft lambswool on the inside. Use this guide for sizing, taken lengthwise with top folded down 4 cm and widthwise at approx midway: Small 21cm x 10cm; Medium 23cm x 11cm; Large 24cm x 12cm. Please note colour black is only available in nappa (shiny finish) and camel is only available in suede.
I bought these for my daughter who bikes to school. In Winter, gloves are not as warm because the fingers are separated. She LOVES these mittens because her fingers are together and her hands stay warm. Also, they are very flexible which means she can hold the handlebars firmly (the stiffer sheepskin ones are not so good for this).
I highly recommend these mittens.
