Traditional 100% wool mittens with sami pattern along the rim. The mittens are lined with wool to make them more windproof, warm and soft. These mittens are called Lovikka mittens, and the pattern is originally from the Swedish arctic areas. The first "lovikka mitten" was knittet in 1892 by a woman called Erika Aittamaa who lived in the small community of Lovikka in the North of Sweden. According to the story a man with frozen hands came by asking her to knit a couple of warm mittens for him with wool that he brought along. The mittens were popular christmas gifts during the 1970´s - and stand out with the nice coloring and pretty details. At the moment we only got these in childrens size - 8-10 years old.
How to maintain your wool product
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 celsious. 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 whet. 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.

Advantages of wool
Wool is a 100% natural product that only sheds fibers that break down, end up as soil in nature, and releases valuable nutrients back to the earth. Wool is 100% natural, produced by one of thousands of sheep consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass. To top it all wool is 100% renewable. Every year the sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.
Being able to absorb large quantities of water, and being odour resistant was also something Roald Amundsen enjoyed walking to the south pole. If you want to get some more information we have prepared some more info for you.
