These fingerless mitts are handmade by members of Kulvi 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. Make a selection from the drop-down menu to see photographs of each individual piece.
*The blues are indigo-dyed yarns purchased from Avani Kumaon. We’re still searching for a local source of indigo, and are happy to support the work of Avani in the meantime!
