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 felted wools and wool blends and are lined with Polartec polarfleece in a variety of weights. The warmth and comfort comes from integrating the two layers that trap millions of small, warm air pockets. This soft fleece is the very best to use as it keeps it's loft and stays warm! The wools I use come from many sources, most of which are gorgeous, repurposed 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. Some palms are done in Ultrasuede which is a richly aesthetic fabric that feels like soft, supple suede. All are machine washable unless otherwise noted.

Thank you to all who donated to the Wounded Warrior Project by buying clearance mittens at the Women's Art Festival!!! What wonderful work they are doing for our veterans. I have made our online donation.
This year, besides my usual donations to favorite fundraisers and charities, we are doing random acts of kindness through the cold season to help keep our less fortunate warm for the Winter and it has given me even more reasons to feel blessed. It's such fun to surprise someone with the gift of warm hands.
I think the website communication is running fine now, so just email me or call with your color/style/size preferences and I will get back to you shortly with a nice selection of pictures. Call the landline phone at 218-525-0629. You can either send a check or use a charge card run with the Square application. After Jan1, I plan to have a bigger selection available for direct purchase through an ETSY shop. I'll keep you posted.
I hope each and every one of you enjoys the holiday season with your loved ones...and that they all love their mittens you have purchased as gifts for them! Peace and joy to you all,
