For those days when it's really cold, and you need your hands fully covered, I have knitted these cosy mittens using a blend of two British wools: Shetland and Blue-faced Leicester. The colour is not achieved with dyes; it is the natural colour of the soft wool from which they are made. This lovely natural grey brown goes with anything.
I have knitted them with a ribbed cuff to slip under your coat to keep the draughts out. This is the simplest plain design, with no fuss or frills. Whether making snowballs or carrying shopping, these will keep your fingers warm. The sweet little "Roses Workshop" brand label is laser etched faux leather.
They measure 25cm (10 inches) long including the cuff, 20cm (8 inches) for the hand section, 10cm (4 inches) across the palm. The knit is stretchy enough to fit most average adult hands, I would call these medium to large.
These beautiful mittens will be wrapped in tissue and tied up with a ribbon, ready for giving or as a treat for yourself. To get your lovely purchase to you quickly and safely I use Royal Mail tracked / signed for services. Save on postage for two or more items bought from my shop at the same time.
Hand-washing is best to keep pure wool in top condition, but if your machine has a cool/ gentle/ wool setting then that works too! Never put wool into a tumble drier, as it will shrink and felt.
Please note - these shown in the photo have sold out, so allow time for me to knit your order.
I love working with the many different wools produced here from British breeds of sheep.
The Shetland is one of the smallest British breeds. They produce fine soft wool in many natural browns and greys as well as white. The Blue-faced Leicester looks down it's long roman nose at you. It is the skin which is dark blue/grey colour - the wool is white and curly, and one of the softest in the UK.
