Bunnies, owls, birds and other adorable items handmade from recycled sweaters make the perfect gifts.
There's a big snow event on the way. We're ready! Are you?
Our little guy looks so handsome in this slouchy beanie! It's warm and cozy but not too bulky. Perfect for any outdoor activity.

Welcome to Miracle Mittens & More!

We are three sisters...Mary Bevan (a graphic designer), Vicki Berkey (an experienced seamstress), and Nancy Lazarus (a creative business professional). We create mittens, hats, and other unique items from upcycled, machine-felted sweaters. Our small business is based in Johnstown, PA.

One of us suffers with Raynaud's disease, so we're passionate about warm mittens. In fact, that's why we started this business. After trying many types of gloves, Mary bought a pair of wool mittens and was amazed that they kept her fingers warm. She told her sisters, "It's a MIRACLE, I finally found something that works!" Vicki decided to try her hand at making sweater mittens with a focus on improving the standard design. We were all so happy with the results that we decided to start a mitten business, and the rest is history!

Miracle Mittens & More was named one of the Top 10 Leading Moms in Business by StartUp Nation.
