These gloves are knit in a lush hand painted wool that evokes a rippling valley beneath the Lonely Mountain, Erebor in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The jewel tones also call to mind, well, jewels, and the treasure buried in Smaug’s lair. The colors also fit in with the Shire, and the soft grass and brilliant flowers growing in Bag End’s landscape. The cables are strong yet intricate, reminiscent of the style of the wood elves and other peoples in the Lord of the Rings universe.
