Sea Whistle Hand Knitted Greengage Merino Mittens
Hand knitted merino wool mittens.
One size 1- 3 years.
Knitted by hand here in Hastings in the softest, 100% extra fine merino wool sourced from non-muelsed sheep in Uruguay.
This beautiful tonal yarn is spun and hand dyed in Peru, by a family run company that employs mostly women of all ages, and gives job opportunities to people with fewer opportunities. The yarn is hand dyed in small batches creating beautiful tones and variations in the skeins. This colour is a beautiful greengage green.
The mittens come in a calico cotton draw string bag.
Wool is naturally dirt-repellent, anti bacterial and odour resistant, so these mittens only to be washed if really dirty.
A gentle cleaning with a damp cloth will normally work effectively.
If you do need to wash the mittens it is best to hand washed in luke warm water with a detergent designed for wool. Gently squeeze out the water then roll in a towel to remove excess water. Reshape and dry flat.
