Making yourself or someone else the gift of a handmade knitted garment is an investment. Investment meant financial but for life too. You are purchasing a piece of clothing created with care, with love, that you will be able to wear for a long time, maybe even becoming a heirloom, who knows.
If this pair of gloves is kept from moths, humidity, aired frequently and seldom washed, as I knitted it with first choice pure wool, you are guaranteed to have this piece of clothing wearable all your life and longer, passing the pair to a loved one. And I think this is pretty amazing. That being said, here is the detailed description of this item

This listing is for one pair of handmade mittens, adult size, ready to be shipped.

This pair has a beautiful selburose pattern, a typical flower/snowflake design coming from Norway. I used two different wools, a white and mustard yellow. Both wools are pure wools gathered ethically from sheep in Iceland.
Icelandic wool has always been used and been considered if not the best, one of the best out there. If it’s good to protect the sheep from Iceland’s harsh weather, it will be wonderful to protect the hands aswell.
The wool is light weight, very warm and yet breathable, it has this rustic feel as it is natural, and cozy.
The cuff part starts with an ornament called “latvian braid” which brings even more this very traditional/folk feeling.

I hand knitted this pair of mittens for both men and women, for the sizing please refer to the measurements below. It is a rather large size.

Measurements taken on the mittens laid flat, unstretched:

•circumference at the top and bottom of the mittens: 20 cm / 7,9 inches

Height from tip of the mittens to top of the cuff: 23 cm / 9 inches

Height of the cuff: 7 cm / 2,8 inches

Back of thumb height: 9 cm / 3,5

I added to the photo album a draw of the mitten with all measurements written.

Please remember, as I only use pure wool, to never wash it in warm water (to prevent the wool to felt or the colours to bleed). Handle carefully, wash your pair by hands only when needed, in a cold bath preferably with a specific wool soap. Do not twist it while wet, press the excess water out and let it dry flat on a towel. Never hold your wet woolen items vertically as the fibers would loosen up and your garment would enlarge by the weight of the wet wool. I can not be taken responsible if you damage the pair of mittens. Air it often but wash it only when really necessary and rarely.

I will send you this pair of mittens as a letter NOT including tracking number. You can purchase a tracking number while placing your order. If so, I will let you know what is your number I’ve brought your package to the post office. Understand also that I can not be taken responsible for the possible custom fees. I am based in Finland meaning if ordering outside Europe you might get customs fees to pay to receive your package. Please contact your customs office to know more.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like a custom made item.
