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.
New for this year are some very special needle felting designs on mittens and cashmere scarves sold separately. I will have some of these scarves for men and they do look smashing on them! While all my shows are finished until the Fall 2014, you can contact me directly at any time by phone or email for your special orders and memory items. I am in the process of updating the photos on the products page, so in the mean time just call me with your requests and I'll send you pictures. It's the perfect time of year to get mittens to match that new coat or order mittens from that sweater you just love that someone shrunk! Thanks again to all my wonderful customers for your continued support.
