Description

Nothing says “cozy” like a pair of hand knit wool legwarmers! Ours are handmade by members of Kullvi Whims women’s self-help group. After hand spinning yarn at home, the women gather natural dye materials from the orchards, fields, and jungles surrounding their villages. They work together to dye the yarns, and then knit following their own whims to combine colors and motifs. The stacked design bands echo the intricately carved wooden beams of local temple architecture. Each pair is one of a kind!

One size fits most adults: approx. 16″ long, 12″ circumference

Care Instructions: Wash by hand in cool water with a mild soap (we recommend Kandvari Natural Laundry Detergent). Lay flat to dry in a shady spot (not in direct sunlight).

    I’m so excited it’s cold enough to wear my legwarmers again! I have them in cream- I love the contrast with the bright-colored accents. Roomy enough but they don’t fall down, and nobody else has a pair like me 🙂 So pretty.

    These legwarmers are my absolute favorite! They are stylish and warm for walking around town on a cold day, but I especially love them for warming up in the dance or yoga studio. I get compliments wherever I wear them. I have had mine for a few years and they are holding up wonderfully; they don’t pill and the colors remain as beautiful as the day I bought them.
