mitten:senja double wool


New from us in, 2019 these 100% wool mittens can truly be called extreme. Made from extra-thick wool, they have undergone the same process of toving/felting as most of the mittens in the shop. Being thicker than other wool mittens they are warmer, more windproof and also can also retain more water without getting cold due to more surface.


The typical Norwegian wool mitten “graavotten” have been used by generations of fishermen and explorers in the north of Norway. An old fisherman’s trick when getting cold hands was to dip the mittens in seawater to make them even warmer and more wind proof. These are of course also 100% hand made with “grandmother guarantee”. Might shrink a bit with use - in my opinion they only get better. Since the yarn used is natural and uncolored, the color of the mittens will vary from light gray to dark grey - depending on the sheep.

If you feel the need to wash your wool garment there are a few things to consider. You should hand wash only at a maximum of 30-40 degrees celsius. When done with the washing you dry the garments on a flat surface, for example, the bathroom floor. Wool might shrink a bit when washed, but is easily pulled into the previous shape when wet. Just make sure you don´t overdo it.


Most of the time it will be enough to just leave your wool product outdoors for a few hours to let it breathe - this will of course not work on stains.
