Kate’s tightly knit mittens add warmth, charm, and a dash of color to a cold winter’s day. The pattern—a leaf mosaic on the back of the mitten and a diamond motif on the palm—celebrates color in a
season of mostly gray and white.

Knit from a decadent blend of Cormo wool, alpaca fiber, and Bombyx silk, the mittens have an itch factor of zero—and are much too pretty to be worn for barn chores.
