A pair of handknitted wool mittens in a classic Norwegian design. The mitten shape, construction, patterns and motifs are all characteristic of the Selbu tradition.
This design is supposed to show spiders, pine branches and roses! Annemor Sundbø says "The spider is a fortuitous animal in folk beliefs. It spins a cosmic web and weaves the fate of people caught in the world's pattern. The spider is at the centre of the mitten with a cross on its back and the spokes of its web stream out to all the edges like the sun's rays. Within the web evergreen branches intertwine with love's endless roses"
These mittens are knitted in Ask Hifa 2, this is a 100% Norwegian sheep wool that is traditionally used for mittens. They should be gently hand washed and dried flat.
The colours are blue and off white, and they will fit a men's medium or women's medium to large hand.
Overall length ( point to bottom of ribbing ) - 28 cm
Width (above thumb) - 10.5 cm
