Sagebrush is a woody and herbaceous plant native to western North America. This aromatic shrub grows in arid and semi-arid conditions throughout a range of cold desert and mountain habitats, such as British Columbia’s Southern Interior. Sagebrush provides food and habitat for a variety of wildlife and was traditionally used as a herbal medicine.

These simple fingerless mitts are knit bottom up with a thumb gusset. A textured column, inspired by our local sagebrush, runs up the center of the mitts.
