There’s nothing that says Christmas quite like the classic red mitten. While we might not be wearing mittens in Northern Michigan for the holidays this year (why, yes, they ARE calling for mid-50s on Wednesday afternoon!), we thought we’d design a convertible pair that would double up on those days when you need even more finger mobility. Wear them with the lids down when you want full coverage, flip the tops up when you need to change the radio or turn up the heat or fish that perfect Petoskey stone out of the water. Our mittens are knit with an absolutely stunning yarn, hand-dyed in custom batches by the lovely Katherine Ashley of Ewetopia Yarns. It’s the most magical blend of Merino, nylon and cashmere, which makes it all the more Christmas-y.
