TinkerAndPo Fingerless Gloves Review and Giveaway

*This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!*

Looking for a sylish way to keep those arms and hands warm during this brrrrr season? Let Lisa of TinkerAndPo help.



TinkerAndPo sells the most beautiful fingerless gloves that I have ever seen! All of the fingerless gloves/armwarmers are made from repurposed merino wool, angora, cashmere or lambswool sweaters. Because they are felted, the fabric is soft, warm, sturdy, and will not fray. The gloves stretch to fit just about anyone! Wear them whenever your hands get cold -while texting, knitting or crocheting, at the computer, at the office, or any other place you can imagine!

Lisa sent me a pair of beautiful rose colored felted gloves to try, and let me tell you, they are so warm! I wondered how gloves without fingers would be able to keep me warm, but they do. Now I can't wait to get this cast off so I can wear both of them! Thanks Lisa!

I asked Lisa a few questions in order for us to get to know her a bit better:

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
With me, what you see is truly what you get. I am the same in "real life" as I appear to be online. Honesty is religion to me, so I don't fake anything. For me, this is the only way to be!

I've always had an entrepreneurial bent to my personality, and I love sewing, fiberwork of all kinds, and beading. I've created and sold dog coats, dog collars, baby clothing, and jewelry, among other things. I LOVE CREATING! I really believe that one person's trash is another's treasure. It fulfills me to re-purpose things to create pretty things for someone to love! It is just such a huge part of who I am.

I work full-time outside the home, and my wonderful husband is an attorney-turned-stay-at-home dad. We have a son who is 4 years old and autistic. We also have a daughter who is 18 months old and is already hell-on-wheels. Blessings come in so many different forms!

2. What is your business and where can we find it?

3. Where else can people find you?

4. Anything else you'd like to share with us?

I would LOVE the spring green felted cable knit angora blend fingerless gloves! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16882219

The color is beautiful, and I have a cable knit obsession. They are gorgeous! (and yes, I would keep them for myself to stay cozy while sewing or working at the computer).

vampy said...

my favourite are these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18016783 i'm sure the angora must make them super warm, and the colour is lovely. I'd give them to my mum...if i could part with them cos she likes handwarmers for when she's playing her guitar, and purple is her favourite colour.

aaaaaaand, i twittered about it

HI there everyone! I'm so honored that you'd all want a chance at my gloves! Makes me want to do more giveaways (this is my first) - so check my blog often because this is fun!

I like the Fingerless Gloves - felted red cabled lambswool because red is one of the school colors of my coworker who I'd give these to. Her son and stepson play sports and she has RA and is always cold, even in the office. With these, she'd be able to enjoy watching their football games and keep warm while doing so!

These look so warm & cozy!!! I'd love a pair of the "felted black merino wool with button trim" for myself. I work from home and sit in our basement office all day freezing my butt off. With these I could wear them and still be able to use the computer - how great would that be??? :)

I have to have Lisa's Fingerless Gloves - bright red CASHMERE for a few reasons; a cannot felt, seriously I flunked felting, I adore red yet do not knit with it, and my hands are always cold.
