i know i complain about our endless summers a plenty – it’s not the sunshine that gets me, it’s just the heat guys! i revel in the short winter months where i get to wear stockings and scarves and coats and things made from wool. i must admit though, it never gets that cold. i don’t think i have worn gloves in south africa more than a handful (…) of times in my entire life. that does not mean i wouldn’t buy a pair. it would probably just end up sitting in a drawer all sad and lonely, waiting for the cold.

if that day ever comes i would definitely not mind rocking a pair of wool gloves from argentinian label nido (i would also like one of those peach jerseys, please). their pieces are handknitted with 100% sheep wool which is “made from a women cooperative located in Mary Grande, a village near of Paraná, Entre Ríos. they shear their sheep, produce the fleece, spin them by hand on wooden distaff and dye the wool with colors extracted from nature: blackberry, onion, locust bark, eucalyptus leaves.
