What are Upcycled Mittens?
Upcycled means taking something that served one purpose and redesigning it for another. A sweater’s purpose is to keep our body warm, and now it can be repurposed to keep our hands warm. These mittens are designed and created from sweaters that have been gently worn, felted, and lined with new soft and cozy fleece. Each pair of mittens starts out with us choosing the highest quality wool and wool blend sweaters. Sometimes we also use dense non-wool sweaters for part of the mitten design. Each pair is designed to be “one of a kind” so it is as unique as you are or the person who is going to receive them. As you look over the selection, you will see each pair has a “personality” all its own. Once you put your hands inside our mittens, you will feel the quality and care that we personally put into each pair.
What is "felted"?
Felting is the process that shrinks the sweaters to make them machine wash/dry on cool. The felting process also makes the fibers tighter and more durable.
