Lady Macbeth was the bewitched and bewitching wife of the Scottish King Macbeth. She truly was the power behind the throne, and she got some of the best lines:

To beguile the time,
Look like the time; bear welcome in your eye,
Your hand, your tongue: look like the innocent flower,
But be the serpent under’t.

—Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act I, Scene 5

These lacy, long Lady Macbeth arm warmers are both the innocent flower and the serpent under it: they are soft and warm, and the cobweb lace pattern gives them a good dose of dark magic.
