Ideal for dance training due to the open heel and open toes. These long yoga socks, leg warmers hand knitted from sheep's wool keep the leg muscles in your lower legs and joints warm and the feet dry while dancing reducing the risk of injury. Sheep wool is naturally a dirt-repellent material so you don't have to wash your leg warmers often. A sustainable fashion - and user-friendly choice.

Material

The Andean Highland wool fiber we use is special because it has the strength and resilience of Corriedale wool, combined with the wearable softness of merino wool. The most commonly used sheep's wool is merino wool. Andean Highland wool is just a little stronger and thus better suited for knitted leg warmers. It does not itch, therefore you do not have to worry about the wool causing irritation.

Size

One size: Length 55cm from heel to top

Fit

Comfort fit

Natural wool color

The wool knit leg warmers are made in the natural wool color. We made this choice consciously because then no dyeing process is needed during production. The wool comes from the Peruvian countryside locally located near Ayacucho where the social workshop that hand knits the NUQI slow fashion products is located.

Washing instructions

Wash your knitted leg warmers with:

Cold or lukewarm water (max 30 degrees.
Add a wool detergent.
Immerse garment in water for about 5 minutes.
Rinse detergent from garment with cold or lukewarm water.
Do not rub to avoid lint.

A slow fashion mentality that matches conscious shopping and a sustainable lifestyle

NUQI slow fashion produces its wool knit leg warmers from 100% animal-friendly organic wool in a clean and fair fair trade production chain with consideration for people, animals and the environment.

NUQI slow fashion small stock, avoid pointless waste

Slow fashion brands and fast fashion brands are completely opposite of each other. Fast fashion is made in large quantities, is very trend-sensitive and very cheap. Good quality is less important. It therefore represents today's society where mass consumption is the norm. Slow fashion is all about quality, timeless designs, fair production and sustainability.

We work with a minimum stock so the product sells out quickly. The more sustainable clothing sold compared to fast fashion, the better. Therefore, we choose to do a small production of each product and launch a new one as soon as the product is sold out.

Sustainable clothing for everyone

We make it possible for everyone to buy sustainable products. We do this by offering every new product at a substantial discount for the first month. After the first month, the offer disappears and the product remains available online for a while at the regular price.

The reason is simple and sustainable: we are against overproduction so there is no waste. All of our materials are used or reused. This zero waste stance enhances our ability to offer our customers a fair price for our sustainable clothing while respecting natural resources.
All products are certified organic and/or fair trade.
