favorite fingerless gloves.

Fingerless gloves, armwarmers {or whatever you’d like to call them!} have become a necessity for me. My art studio is in the basement, and for some reason, it’s just plain colder down here! I always have a pair on hand to wear in the studio, and as the weather gets a bit warmer, I’ll wear them out and about.

I have two new favorite glove makers. The first, Overcast, is based in Christchurch, New Zealand. All of her armwarmers {above} are made from 100% merino wool, are super cozy, and go with anything! I really love these. She also offers a lighter weight style for spring.

Next are fingerless gloves by Tinker and Po. Based in Chicago, her gloves are made from repurposed sweaters and are embellished with sweet little buttons. My 12 year old daughter swiped my pair right away…I think they might officially be hers now! Also, 10% of all sales are donated to autism research in their son, Declan’s, name.
