Description

What would a fall and winter collection be without a pair of mittens? The Spinel mittens are not only super fun to knit because of the colourwork involved; it also makes them extra warm and cosy. Select four different colours to create a gemstone-necklace-like effect, one main colour and three gradients for a gentler transition, or even just two - feel free to play as your heart desires. Tulliver Yarn’s naturally dyed colours work so well with each other that we believe all combinations will be gorgeous.
