Moose Mountain MIttens are made by hand in Duluth, MInnesota. Each pair is unique and artfully crafted. We have very long, cold Winters here and we know the secrets to looking great while being warm and comfortable! My mittens, hats and scarves are made from quality, preshrunk and felted wools, wool blends and cashmere. I use a hypoallergenic soap preparing all the wool and cashmere. The mittens and hats are lined with Polartec polarfleece in a variety of weights which is the very best for warmth and comfort and also wicks moisture while keeping its loft. The warmth and comfort comes from integrating the two layers that trap millions of small, warm air pockets.
The wools I use come from many sources, most of which are gorgeous, upcycled sweaters of better labels. The wool is felted, blocked to dry, carefully matched and cut out. Then the mittens and liners are sewn, cuffed and trimmed with beautiful buttons. Some mittens and scarves are trimmed with vintage jewelry, some are embellished with needle felting and/or appliqued and some hats are trimmed with handmade felted pins. Adult palms are done in Ultrasuede which is a richly aesthetic fabric that feels like soft, supple suede and really makes the mittens last longer with the added bonus of providing grip. All are machine washable unless otherwise noted.
