I have received so many compliments when wearing my lovely, chunky wool
wrist-warmers. They were a Christmas gift, from 'Forage' who had a stall on
Manchester Christmas Market.
Recycled, sustainable and fairly traded the 'Forage Finger Knitted Project' started in 2008,
teaching women in poor communities to knit with their fingers, supplying the wool then buying the hats & wrist-warmers back for a fair price.
With my lovely wristwarmers I got a leaflet with pictures of the women in Northern India involved with the project and a small label telling me mine were knitted by 'Kamala'. Probably the elder of the women, the kids said "Ah, she's really cute!" Ha!
You can see how perfect the colours are for me!!
It's so nice to receive a gift that's a little different!
Even more when it's ethical too.
Hop over to Forage & take a look :-)
