Little fingers need to stay warm, but mittens get in the way of building fairy houses, fashioning fishing rods, or running backyard bakeries. These Pop-Up Owl Mittens combine the practicality of a fingerless glove with the coziness of a mitten. The pop-up mitten owl folds down to reveal an underlying fingerless mitten or half-finger glove, and flips up to keep fingertips toasty. Pair these mittens with an Owl & Branch Beanie and Branch Cowl for maximum coziness.
