During Pioneer time houses were not heated very well and any person needing extra warmth on their wrists would wear wristers. The added warmth kept their wrists and hands warmer while they were doing their daily jobs.
Wristers are a perfect solution for some one who suffers from arthritis, carpal tunnel symptoms or just achy joints.
Hand knitted from natural gray wool yarn. Hand wash in cool water. Lay flat to dry. Expands to fit most wrists.
