These mittens are lightly warming, ideal for cool weather, 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.
