These thick and cosy fair isle pattern socks are hand knitted from 100% sheep wool, and produced by some very talented Nepalese women. Perfect for wearing around the house like slippers, and for pulling on under wellies.

Each item is beautifully handmade and free size. This design best fits a UK size 4-8.

Cosy Buddha socks, headbands and wrist warmers are hand knitted in Kathmandu by women working for a fair trade organisation that marries together traditional Nepalese, Newar and Tibetan crafts with modern business practice.

This organisation pays its artisans a fair wage, and allows women to work from home and knit part-time, in the evenings, when housework and childcare is done for the day. This is work that keeps women out of factories, and protected from exploitation - work that keeps traditions alive and families together whilst enabling rural communities to thrive and protect their cultural heritage. 

On top of fair pay, safe working conditions and opportunities to up-skill and train as group leaders, these talented craftswomen also receive a profit share from knitwear sales, to help them send their children to school.
