I really love these mitts. They were inspired by a gift from a good friend
(and here’s the original ones).
These mitts are a long-cuffed, lightweight, versatile accessory that will carry you through Autumn, Spring and Winter. They can be worn pulled up over your arms, or scrunched down around your wrists to keep the cold wind out of your cuffs.
(that’s how I usually wear them!)
I’ve gotten quite attached to my Amie mitts. They come out with me every day now (but, with the weather beginning to think about Spring, I fear their days are numbered!)
They’re wonderfully soft and light, but still give my hands the warmth they need.
Wear them with your friends in mind – I always do!
