CLEANING CARE AND INSTRUCTIONS

Frank Dirt: let dirt dry completely then smack mitt across a clean railing. (Example: dog-drool stick dirt or garden dirt).

Coffee Spill: Hold the spilled part under cool running water; squish-squeeze until the water runs clear.

Grease Stain: Spot wash with a bit of mild hand soap or shampoo in luke-warm water. Don’t rub; but squish-squeeze is fine (like popping bubble wrap). Rinse well.

Whole Mitt Clean: Place outside overnight in the snow or under a covered porch in the rainy mist.

After any of the wet methods, roll up in a towel, squeeze, shape, then dry them in a warm spot like heat register or fridge top.

NEVER put them in a washing machine or dryer unless you’d like to send them to your 7 year-old niece who lives in Siberia.

Are they still functional in the rain?

Yes, they work great in rain totally retaining their heat insulating properties. The outer layer creates a wind resistant barrier amplifying the inner warmth. If anything, they're warmer when they are rain-wet.

Dry them in a warm airy spot overnight. (Roll them up in a towel and squeeze first if they’re sopping wet, then shape and dry.)

As an aside, DutchyMitts can be paired with an outer shell for extreme winter conditions.

Do the white mitts get grungy-looking?

No, wool naturally repels dirt and stays fresh looking through years of wear.

Cleaning is easy. Wool is a low-maintenance, easy-care natural fabric.

Don’t be shy to choose the white mitts if your heart so desires. Wool stays fresh and clean. I personally wear white mitts.. and I’m really tough on them.

Do they get stinky like some fabrics and wools when wet?

No, they smell nice in the rain and wet snow :)

What's the fuzzy stuff on the palm?

That's the bloom. For the first month or two, the fibers are traveling, settling, locking in and forming to your hand, because wool is a micro-dynamic fabric. Gently pluck it off and leave it for the birds’ nests. It’ll settle down after a couple of month’s wear.

How much do they weigh?

The Mitts are super light and feel nearly weightless. It’s astounding how warm they are!!

Icelandic Sheep have been bred in exclusion for over 1100 years and their wool is incredibly light-weight due to their geographical position.

The sub-Arctic climate causes their thick airy coat. Since the sheep need extra insulation, the wool has naturally developed to be lighter-weight over time.

On the contrary, a heavy thick wool fleece would be a burden when trudging through blizzards and snowdrifts.

Icelandic Wool much lighter than wools from South America or any of the warmer climates.

Are they itchy like some wool?

Nope.. they’re NEVER itchy. They're soft and comfy. The triple felting process softens the wool. They feel fluffy, downy soft and dreamy.

Merino fiber, which is the felted lining in a DutchyMitt, can be used next to baby skin. It’s that gentle, being less than 24 microns thick in diameter.

Why should I get a pair?

Quite simply, they’re THE BEST hand-crafted, durable, ethically-sourced, high-performance, felted woolen mitt out there. The process is unique and exceptional — no one else does it like a DutchyMitt.

..and they’re fucking warm ;)
