Womens hand knit green wool mittens, pistachio

by LambsEars

Warm wool mittens knit with heathered green wool. These are really nice!
I knit these on three knitting needles, so they don't have a seam, and the rolled cuff adds a modern twist to an old-fashioned favorite. These mittens fit medium (most) women's hands.

These mittens have been hand knit by me from 90% Merino wool and 10% mohair. The wool used for these mittens is processed at a small, family run woolen mill in Alberta, Canada. This mill is environmentally responsible and produces quality products the old-fashioned way. The wool is processed naturally and is non-carbonized (not heated to extremely high temperatures to destroy plant matter). Much of the equipment the yarn is spun on at these mills dates back to the 1800's. The yarn is mule spun, a process developed during the last half of the eighteenth century. Mule spinning gives yarns characteristics all their own. Mule spun yarns are drawn, spun, relaxed, then wound about 6 feet at a time. The draw allows for a more uniform product, and the relaxation of the tension allows the yarn to fluff. Many experts consider the mule to make the very highest quality of handwork yarns.

Wool: hand wash, roll in a towel and lay on a heater register to dry.

This mitten fits my hand snugly, so these will fit those with hands that measure about:

7" (19.05 cm) around the knuckles
7 " (17.78 cm) from tip of middle finger to base of the palm of your hand
2' (5.08 cm) length of inside of thumb
