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. All are handmade with care and made to last.

Thank you all for your business this past year and I hope Santa was good to all of you! The Etsy shop will be closing Jan. 31 for this season, but you can always contact me directly through this website by phone or email for anything you might need. I'll be busy sewing and knitting up a storm for next season! Wishing you all the best to you and yours for 2017!
Thank you to all my wonderful and generous customers who have supported The Solvay Hospice House this year by purchasing the coffee cozies. All of the proceeds from this fundraiser have been donated to the Miller Dwan Foundation earmarked for Solvay. The check is in the mail...so to speak! I so appreciate your support in helping to make this donation! I wish you all a safe, happy and healthy 2017 and look forward to seeing you in the Fall!
