Callistemon Mittens, a unisex textured fingerless mitten design, was inspired by my need to have a bright pop of colour in my life on dreary winter days. It features a textured hand and two finger cuff options, short and long. Photos show the long version which is deep enough to cover the fingers and can be folded back out of the way.

Fancy a matching beanie? Callistemon Beanie is also available.
