This pattern is two in one, a mitten and a glove, which can be worn separately or together depending on how how cold it is on any given day! The outer mitten features a flip top giving you dexterity and can be worn alone or layered over the glove. The glove is knit in SilverSpun, a conductive yarn, so that even when you’re wearing the gloves you can use all your techie devices without having to take your gloves off. On a super cold day you can wear your mitten over your glove and still be able to answer your phone or browse the internet without having to expose your fingertips to the blistering cold!

The conductive quality of SilverSpun not only allows you to use your smart devices while wearing them, it also conducts head helping your fingertips stay warm on the coldest days. Add a layer of wool on the outside to insulate your fingers and create a barrier against the chill and frozen fingers will be a distant memory.
