WILD AND WARM Guanaco and Vicuña Lace Fingerless Gloves
Wild guanacos and vicuñas are both beautiful and graceful. They produce some of the finest fibers in the world. It is fitting to knit a light and lacy garment to honor their elegance. These open-fingered gloves are not only decorative but also warm. Learn more about spinning guanaco and vicuña fibers in the Winter 2008 issue of Spin-Off.
