About

Ecofriendly Upcycled Wool Mittens

Thank you for visiting my shop Missy's Mittens. My main items for sale are mittens made from repurposed wool sweaters. I look for 80-100% wool sweaters with little sign of wear. Sometimes they have a tiny hole or are a little shrunk in the wash. I felt them in hot water and they are ready to be made into mittens. All my mittens are lined with arctic fleece which I purchase from a local fabric store and I prewash that as well.

I also started making roses from the smaller pieces of wool and I'm enjoying creating brooches, hair clips and lapel pins. I sometimes make tea cozies and tablet cases from the wool as well.

All of my items are created in a smoke-free and fragrance free home.

You can find me on Instagram @missysmittens.

Shipping
Items are shipped within 3-5 business days. Shipping options available at time of purchase. For tracking on international orders please message me for a quote. As shipping prices vary based on your country or postal code or zip code, I can only estimate the price in the listing.
For Canadian customers - Canada Post prices continue to increase every year. I have entered the cost to send an average pair of mittens to eastern Canada. If you live in a different province the actual shipping cost may be cheaper. Etsy only allows 1 price for all of Canada at this time. If the shipping is cheaper for your order I will refund the difference. Or you can ask for a quote before you purchase by providing your postal code and item you are intetested in.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are available upon request. Please message me with your request and I will add the listing to Etsy. (Prices vary)
