Absolutely beautiful mittens, remind me of that which my grandmother or great aunt made. You will want to save these long after your baby grows out of them to give to your kids' kids. Love the eye-catching vibrant pink color.

About

Handknit mittens and scarves for adults, kids, and babies.

The Marion's Mittens shop was created when a grandmother (Marion) asked a granddaughter (Laura) to help sell some mittens she'd knitted. We set up an Etsy shop that very day and got off to a great start. There are lots of people who want to wear or gift mittens like the ones their own grandmothers might make. That's what you'll find in our shop!

Marion's mittens and baby sweaters are knitted from Marion's patterns dating back more than 70 years to the 1940s. She's certainly a pro and has knitted thousands of pairs. Laura learned to knit from Marion. She creates the mini mittens for babies and toddlers as well as our newest size for kids ages 3-4. Although she's a new knitter, a pair of Laura's mittens won 2nd prize at the county fair and the judges labeled her work as being "precise."

Our mittens are knitted in the round using small double pointed needles (size 2, 3, or 4). Small stitches result in a tight knit. These mittens fit more snugly and keep you warmer than mittens that are knitted or crocheted in chunky patterns using large needles. Our method takes longer but we really prefer the result! An adult pair takes a full day to complete, while the smaller sizes take a few hours to knit.

Be sure to check out our reviews on Etsy to see what our wonderful customers are saying! https://www.etsy.com/shop/MarionsMittens/reviews

Our knitted items are made from acrylic yarn which is soft, stretchy, and machine washable. It's also great for people with skin sensitivities and allergies who might have reactions to the lanolin in wool. For those who prefer a natural fiber, we occasionally offer items that have been knitted from alpaca fiber or superfine merino wool.

You'll also find scarves and baby afghans in our shop. Knitted and crocheted by one of Marion's daughters, these items are available in a variety of colors and make great gifts!

You can learn more about what we're working on right now by reading our blog at http://blog.marionsmittens.com and following us on Instagram @MarionsMittens.

Laura has another Etsy shop called Best Bet Design. The shop features home décor and accessories sewn by Laura and her mother, Anne. Printables are also available. Visit http://www.etsy.com/shop/BestBetDesign

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Most of our knitted items (except for those with embellishments) are machine washable on a gentle setting. Lay flat to dry. You may also hand wash or spot treat as needed. Please note that fuzzing or pilling may occur. You can clean this up as you would a sweater.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I'm happy to gift wrap your order and/or provide a personalized note. Contact me to discuss the details.

Sizing details

Adult Sizes: Adult, Small Adult

Children's Sizes: Ages 3-4, Ages 5-6, Ages 7-8, Ages 9-10 (same as small adult)

Baby/Toddler Sizes: Preemie/Small Newborn, Ages 6-12 Months, Ages 12-18 Months, ages 18-24 Months

Measuring for mittens

Measurements are available in each listing. These are approximate; because our items are handmade, dimensions may vary slightly. Sizing by age is designed for an average fit. You may also trace your hand or your child's hand on paper and measure the dimensions. Do not include the cuff in measurements, especially for babies and small children, who naturally have a slight curl in their hand.

Why are Marion's Mittens special?

Marion's Mittens are knitted by hand from acrylic yarn. We love this material because it's machine washable, durable, and good for people with skin sensitivities or allergies. Knitted by hand using small (size 2, 3, or 4) double pointed needles, our mittens are tightly knit to keep you warm.

Our traditional mittens are knitted from a pattern designed more than 60 years ago by Marion. These are the classic mittens that YOUR grandma used to make! They are soft and stretchy.

We also offer knitted and crocheted scarves and baby afghans, as well as finely knitted baby sweater sets.

Custom and personalized orders

100% of the payment is due in advance for custom orders. Custom orders are taken based on our availability to complete them within your time frame. Everything is handmade and each pair of mittens takes hours to complete. We can accommodate these requests with a reasonable lead time, however! For large orders, assume one week for every three pairs of mittens needed.
