How do I know what size fingerless gloves to order?

Most women find that the size medium fits well. If you know you have tiny hands, you are most likely a small. If you have large paws, you'd best be suited ordering a size large.

Yes. We will never, ever share your information with anyone.

Yes, we will make your gift look great! Just leave a note during checkout with the details. We're happy to write a pretty gift card as well, just let us know what you'd like it to say. We will then exclude the receipt with the shipment.

Care instructions for your Elyse Allen cashmere


For fingerless gloves, hats and headbands, hand wash in cold water with a gentle product such as Ecover laundry wash or Woolite. Do not wring out the water- use a clean, dry towel to roll the wet cashmere accessory in and air dry flat. Do not machine wash or use a clothes dryer! You may also dry clean all accessories if you are more comfortable.

For embellished studded scarves and shawls, use a professional dry cleaner. If the edges curl from humidity, you may safely flatten them back out by using a steam iron on the inside (unembellished) side of the scarf or shawl.


Moths love cashmere. Cleaning your well-worn product prior to summer storage is a great idea. Make sure the accessories are completely dry before storing away in a moth-proof bag. Pheromone clothing moth traps are a great, odorless, non-toxic alternative to moth balls. We love the ‘Safer’ brand moth traps that are available for purchase online.


We take great care in hand making our products with the best possible materials and workmanship. If there is a defect in manufacturing, we will repair or replace it at no cost for a period of 14 days from the date of sale. Normal wear and tear is expected and is not covered, however we have a great professional textile repair person for you to contact should you ever need repair in the future for your knit accessories. Please contact us for more details.

For any flaws or product defects, please contact Elyse Allen Textiles (info@elyseallentextiles.com) ASAP- prior to returning the product with proof of purchase.


Clean your cashmere at least once a year and protect it from exposure to moths as much as possible.
