These ambidextrous gloves were designed to be worn with equal comfort on either hand - to be worn alone or together. The solid-colored undergloves are a dramatic "opera" length. The colorwork on the back of the over-gloves is a typical Turkish sock pattern interpreted with varying background coloration and is complemented by the simpler colorwork on the palm and thumb gore.
