mitten:lovikka kids

kr 190,00Price
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.

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.
