These mittens in children's sizing are lightly warming, ideal for cool autumn weather on their own, or for wearing underneath separate outer mitten shells. Ruskovilla organic merino knit wool is soft and gently stretchy, and the natural off-white undyed wool colour comes with the bonus of a silk inner lining. The other colour mittens come with two layers of wool, while the undyed off-white mittens are with silk inner and a single layer of wool outer.
Please note: As these are pure wool with very little treatment, heat or too much agitation during washing will cause wool to felt. It it recommended to handwash with a wool detergent, or machine was in a front loading washer on woolens cycle. However, since they are wool, it is not necessary to wash them too often, as the high lanolin content in the wool means that there is a natural oxidation process that occurs. We suggest to let them air out a bit in between wearings, and wash only when needed. During summer months, or when otherwise not in use, we also recommend to store them in a resealable plastic bag - the one that they come in works great - to help protect them against moths.

Special Order & Pre-order Items:
Some items on our site are designated 'special order'. An item that is special order means that we do not have it in stock, and we will order it in especially for you, once you have placed your order. The wait time will vary depending on the item. We endeavour to have items here as soon as we can for special orders, but it depends on both the manufacturer and the transit time from them to us. In some cases, it could be an item hand-carved especially for you, and it could take some time for it to be made; in other cases, it is already in stock by a manufacturer, and it is only the transit that we are dependant on.
If you are ordering a special order item or an item that is by pre-order, the other items in your order will be held waiting to ship with it. If you need other items sooner, than please reach out to us, and we'll see what we can do with respect to shipping charges for a split shipment.
