My mittens are constructed from high quality recycled wool sweaters that have been felted to provide a natural wind and water resistant barrier against the cold. Like snowflakes, no two pair are exactly alike. Lined with coordinating polar fleece, these mittens are not just beautiful but incredibly warm and toasty!
Hand wash warm, air dry.
My warm woolen mittens are sure to be one of your favorite things this winter!
