Wristwarmers and Yoga Socks from Repurposed Sweaters

Announcement    Welcome to my Shop! If you're looking for a wonderful (gorgeous, ethical and practical !) gift for yourself or someone else, you've come to the right place.

Ideal inside and out - well-loved by authors in cool cabins, women working in drafty places, musicians, photographers and artists working outside, those with arthritis or tendonitis, dog-walkers, yoginis, and runners. Great for hiking, and lovely slipped under your gardening gloves! Use your phone and text with ease.

The warming properties of the wristwarmer are truly remarkable. It’s like putting on an extra layer. This makes them really useful for working out. They come on and off easily as you warm up and cool down and neatly stow away in a pocket. Great for hikers, as you don't need to take off your backpack to remove garments to regulate your body temperature.

On really cold days, when I'm outside, I like to wear mine over my thin gloves - they bridge the gap between the glove and the sleeve of my jacket. When it's snowy out, I wear them under my snow gloves.

Each wristwarmer is serged with a four-thread overlock machine, giving built-in stretch to the stitches. Then, the upper edge of the main seam (by the base of the index finger) is carefully reinforced with handstitching. High quality polyester thread is used in matching and contrasting colours.

These are sized to be form-fitting on the average woman’s hand and wrist. If your hand is quite small, they’ll be a little loose; if your hand is larger than average, they’ll fit tightly.

Each pair comes with a label that includes care instructions.

Your purchase helps to support the growing movement in upcycled fashion - reducing the burden of textile waste on our precious planet.

If you don't see your heart's desire here, please feel free to send me a convo and inquire about what you're looking for - there is a wide range of colours available, and I love creating special orders.

Please take a look at my shop policies before ordering.

If you're in a hurry for your gift to arrive to your recipient, I can ship straight from my studio to their adress and write up a gift card for you.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Welcome to Turquoise Poppies.
    Each item in the store is made by me, with great care and attention to detail.

    Items are made from sweaters which have been cleaned and examined by me, so that only the best quality fibers are used. I work in a smoke-free studio, and store materials and items in sealed plastic bags or lidded plastic containers, protected from contact with our beloved family pets.

    Thank-you for visiting my shop!

    Your order will be shipped within 24 hours of payment being received.

    I ship worldwide. Your country may charge you import/sales tax for which buyer is responsible.
    Please remember delivery can take anything from 1-6 weeks depending on location, customs delays and local delivery services. If you experience a delay or non-delivery please let me know so that I can do my best to problem-solve. To keep shipping costs, low, I use a method that doesn't provide a tracking number. If you would like to use a more expensive service which provides a tracking number, please convo me before you order, so that can be arranged.

    If you need to use express delivery, please contact me prior to payment for extra costs involved.

    I will notify you once your item has shipped.

    Items are shipped in minimal flat paper packages (recycled brown paper) to minimize shipping costs and environmental footprint.
