Fair Trade Winter Woollies
We have a fine selection of handknitted Earflap Hats, Gloves, Mittens, Scarves and Socks. They are 100% wool and extremely warm. They are hand knitted by a community of Nepalese women living in the villages around Kathmandu, Nepal.
It is a great scheme, the women hand knit the jumpers in their homes which enables them to earn an income in their villages, rather than moving away from their families to Kathmandu where a lot of their wages is taken up by rent and food. Earning an income in their village means that they can stay with their families and have far more expendable income and thus helps alleviate the problem of rural poverty in Nepal.
