Description

There's always a balance when you're out in the elements between keeping your hands warm and having enough dexterity to faff about with your kit or just eat your lunch.

Made using 100% sheep’s wool in a patterned knit, the Lyness gloves are half-lined with microfleece for a soft feel against your skin. The fold-over mitts can be unbutton and pulled over the fingerless gloves when your hands are cold and folded back up for fiddly tasks.

Nature’s great insulator, wool makes a great material for keeping your extremities warm. Plus, it’s highly breathable and odour resistant, so you can wear it more and wash it less.

Each woolly glove from Black Yak is hand-knitted in Nepal. As well as being certified fair trade, a proportion of Black Yak’s sales go back into the communities that make them.
