Shimmering blue scales evoke the sea in these knitted scalemail gauntlets.

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 wrist. The scales point down toward the fingers. Sturdy but royal blue acrylic yarn forms the base of these gauntlets. The palm is scale free for comfort. The thumb holes allow this to be worn over the hand, or ignore the thumbholes and wear it higher on the wrist.

To find the correct size measure around the narrowest part of your wrist. If you measurement falls between two sizes order the smaller one-they stretch.

Dragonhide is hand washable in warm water and mild detergent, lay flat to dry. The scales are used are permanently colored, the color can be scratched off, but just washing doesn't affect them.

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.

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.
