Warm felted mittens in six sizes from toddler to extra large adult. My grandmother made wool mittens for me when I was little. I played in the snow for hours, my hands kept toasty by the soft mittens. When I came inside, she’d dry my mittens on the metal radiator. My mittens gave off a lanolin-scented steam, and got thicker after time. These mittens are partially felted in the washing machine after knitting. They stay warm even when wet, and are great in the snow!
Great gift idea! Quick knit.
Mittens are partially felted in the washing machine, instructions included.
For those of you unfamiliar with radiators, they were used to heat homes. Here are some photos: http://www.antiqueplumbingandradiators.com/
