Camouflage yourself for the darkest forest in these almost to the elbow fingerless gloves. This pair has shiny green and matte black scales on black acrylic yarn.

Dragonhide Gauntlets: the look of scale maille but with handknitted comfort, flexibility and warmth. The anodized aluminum scales are knitted in an overlapping pattern that covers the back of the hand and arm almost to to the elbow. The scales point down toward the fingers. The palm is scale free for comfort. The tops of the gauntlets are reinforced with hidden elastic cord to help them stay up.

To make a pair for you I'll need to know: wrist circumfrence, circumfrence around the fullest part of the forarm, length from base of fingers to elbow. Many other colors and designs are available. See my sold section for some examples: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Crystalsidyll/sold Ready to ship items can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Crystalsidyll?section_id=6132040

Current turn around time is about 4 weeks.

Frequently asked questions about Crystalsidyll

Knitted scalemail is my own invntion. Almost 10 years ago I bought a bunch of scales to make a traditional armor shirt for my husband. About one inch into it I realized that wasn't going to happen. But I had all those scales and I hate waste, so I fooled around with it until I came up with my technique.
Dragonhide knitted scalemail is hand washable, lay flat to dry. If your item has leather laces or plastic inserts, remove them before washing.

Non Dragonhide items will have care instructions in the listing. (I'm adding these now, it might take a while to get them all.)
This varies widely by the size of the project. Small custom dice bags can be ready in just a few days, whereas large projects can take weeks. Please contact me for a completion time for your project.

My work also is warranteed to be without defect and to last. Defects in my work are my problem and I will correct them.
I'm afraid there is no easy answer for this one. Shipments to Canada usually take less than 2 weeks. Overseas varies between about 1 week up to 6. Occasionally an item gets held in customs, which can delay things further. For many destinations limited tracking is available, your tracking number will be in the email you receive when I ship your order.

Customers in the UK-if your order has not arrived it might be at your local post office. UK customers have informed me that you are supposed to get a card from your postal carrier if custom fees are due, however that card sometimes is not delivered.
I am shipping from Washington state in the US. If you are overseas, the answer is "Maybe." Each country has its own limit before customs apply. Please check your governments website for more information. I do know the UK has a very low threshhold, and in addition to VAT the postal service will collect a handling fee of 8 pounds. Sometimes more expensive items slip through unnoticed, but please be prepared for VAT/customs/handling fee.
