wonderfully warm...mittens for all!
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.
Well, Winter has arrived early AGAIN, hasn't it?
I've been busy creating all things warm and wonderful for you and your families. With the show season well underway, I will still be hard at work adding new things to your choices. If you can't make one of the shows, just give me a call with your style and color preferences.
This year, besides my usual donations to favorite fundraisers and charities, we are doing random acts of kindness to help keep our less fortunate warm for the Winter and it has given me even more reasons to feel blessed.
Stay warm and hope to see you soon!
