River Crossing Mitts
Interweave SKU: EP3354
Styled after a boxing hand wrap, these mitts are masculine and tough--but the cashmere-blend yarn is pretty soft on the hands, which means he’ll be wearing them a lot. Both gloves are stitched the same, except for reversed crossband placement, so they work up quickly. Your guy can be wearing these by the end of the weekend, and the machine-washable yarn means they’ll wash up well after he’s finished stacking the wood. (Interweave)
