I Heart Alpaca
We know Valentine’s Day makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, so why not extend the warmth to your extremities with these hand knit, love-inspired fingerless gloves by Object Mythology, a company devoted to creating jobs for Peruvian women by creating a line of traditional craftwork made from 100% baby alpaca fiber, a light, warm, fully sustainable fiber. These red (or white)-hot hand holders ($45), colored with earth-loving low-impact dyes, are an adorable way to keep your mitts toasty while moseying through the wintry months.
In the same design, the equally admirable alpaca hot water bottle warmer ($70, or $60 for a smaller version) is designed to bring serious heat when battling sore muscles, sickness, or any other ailment. Come February frost or flu, alpaca fiber wards off the willies, and keeps you looking stylish at the same time. What’s not to love?
