In the coldest of seasons, a sturdy pair of mittens in a dense, impenetrable fabric will keep hands much warmer than gloves. Add a heavily cabled panel along the top to maximize their wind resistance and you won’t want to leave home without them. This pair are knit with squishy worsted weight wool in six sizes (XXS/XS/S/M/L/XL) for children, teens, and adults. For best insulation use a lofty, strong wool that traps air and forms a cohesive fabric surface.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
