In Greek mythology Clytia was a water nymph. She was in love with Helios, the personification ofthe sun, but he didn’t love her back. In her mourning over her lost love she sat naked on a rock, without any food and drink, staring at the sun all day long. After nine days she was transformed into a sunflower, a flower that is known for always turning in the direction ofthe sun.

Clytia mittens are a pair of traditional colorwork mittens with a ribbed cuff and thumb gusset for a comfortable fit. The main motif at the back of the hand is a large sunflower that will make your hands bloom in the winter cold.
