Announcement   All the mittens are in the shop for this winter, I'll be making more when it gets warm in the spring so I can start tanning.Thanks Elmer A few customers ask me about the white powder that comes out of the mittens sometimes. Its a old trappers secret, Its glade carpet stuff, its the nice smell. Just work it in the fur and let set for hour, day or week, then shakeout hard, could also clean the fur. I been using it for years with no problems. I grew up on a little farm in Minnesota.Our only water supply was a old windmill and I still felt like I was born one hundred years to late. But, one hundred years ago, I couldn't have a fine shop like this!!

Tips for wearing fur mittens!

- mittens should be a little big so you can create a heat pocket, this is why mittens are warmer them gloves.
- If the mittens are big and slip down when held down at your side, touch the tip of your middle finger to the tip of your thumb, this will hold them in place.
- If you have to do something, like unlocking a car door, just slip your hand out of the mitten, the cold key will feel good in your warm hand.
- If people look at your mittens and say "the poor animal", just remind them, the fur looks better on your hands then going to waste laying on the road.
- In the case of the coyote, remind them, you have the coyote under control so it won't eat their cat.


THANK YOU ALL!

Grace sent me a convo and told me how much she liked her new mittens. I sent her a convo and told her it will take two whole coyote pelts to made me a new hat because she made my head so big. After reading all the nice convo's and feedback, all of you sent me, it's going to take six x-large whole coyote pelts to make me a new hat! You all gave me a real big head!

Thanks Elmer

These mittens are heavenly. So warm and soft. First my famly said "What are you warring?" But during our family weekend walk my mittens were the ones who held the warmest hands. Thank you so much. These kind of mittens aren't to be found in Europe. The are a must to have.
