See, I love making use of as much of the wool sweater as possible! These fun mittens have added charm with heart shaped wool applique's layered on top - from left over pieces of wool sweaters to be fun, functional and beautiful yet again. They do take more time to make, but I think the effort is so worth it.
Like all of my sweater mittens, these are made from quality thrifted wool sweaters. Each sweater is washed and shrunk in hot water – on purpose! – in a process called ‘felting’. This process makes for tightly woven cozier mittens but why stop there? Each pair is also lined with fleece for extra softness and warmth for the coldest winters, hockey rinks and early morning walks with the puppers. You won’t find any two pair the same - each set is unique, kinda like you!
SIZE: Adult Medium
These measure 10 inches from tip of the fingers to the bottom of the cuff and about 4.5 inches wide across the palm.
This size fits most women and teens.

Every Wonder Woolie treasure is unique, and handmade with care.
Wash in gentle cold water cycle, lay flat to dry. If this item is washed or dried hot, it will likely ruin it. Please don't? I can't accept a return if its been shrunk!
