In the market for some ethical gloves, hats, or scarves this winter? I don’t blame you, it’s been blooming cold! The good news is I’ve rounded up some of my ethical favourites for you so you don’t have to search too hard.

We experienced our first big frost of the season here in Edinburgh last week. It caught me by surprise, and I had to dig out my trusty hat and scarf from the back of the wardrobe to keep warm when out and about.  

Sadly my poor hands were freezing cold as I’m in dire need of some new gloves, after losing my trusty pair on the bus to work. As such, I’ve been searching online for some new ethical ones.

Guide to Ethical Gloves, Hats and Scarves

If you’re in need of an ethical winter warmer too then here is my round-up of some of my favourite ethical gloves, winter hats, and scarves that I’ve come across.

People Tree

Fairtrade stalwarts People Tree* always has a great collection of hats, gloves, and scarves. These ethical gloves (£25) and hat (£22), for example, are hand knitted in 100% pure wool. The pom-poms are then made from strands of recycled wool for an extra eco touch.

Think Boutique
