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.
