These long Pachamama Finisterre socks are hand knitted on a Fair Trade basis in Nepal using 100% wool. The design uses bands of traditional Fair Isle patterns made up of carefully selected colours. The socks can be used in roomy boots or indoors to warm your toes up after a chilly dip.
The majority of Pachamama's production is village based, with the knitters supplementing their incomes from farming and fitting production around their own family and work commitments. A small number of people work in a factory environment to make hand framed knitting, to hand finish and pack garments, and to produce a range of hand felted items. All the people work in excellent conditions and receive benefits and pay above the local standards.
Despite the seasonal nature of their business Pachamama is committed to providing year round orders for their knitters to ensure a regular and reliable income.
