These hand warmers are a nice update on traditional norwegian Selbu mittens and gloves. the name Selbu is taken from the mountainous region around lake Selbu where the design style was popularized for the tourist trade in the mid-1800s. Historically, Selbu mittens were knitted in an intricate symmetrical pattern of black and white, featuring the star-point and rose motifs popular in decorative folk arts of the region. the pattern in this pair, inspired by a Victorian-era wallpaper print, adds a bit of feminine flair and vintage appeal without losing the traditional look or feel. Worked in mint green and plum, they bring a touch of spring warmth to a cold winter day. An extralong cuff keeps wrists warm with old-fashioned elegance.
