Extra warm mittens to keep you as toasty as a bird in a nest!
These Osprey inspired mittens are a personal favourite of Skunks n' Roses and made entirely of handmade and thrifted textiles.
The brown back and thumbs of the mittens are made from thrifted suede.
The white palm of the mitten is the underside of a Nova Scotian sheepskin, gleaned from Oulton's Farm (Windsor, NS), and mineral-tanned by Laura using an alum solution. This leaves the insides of the mittens warmly lined and woolly.
The cuffs of the Osprey mittens (size small and medium) are also mineral-tanned, and made from snowshoe hare, sustainably trapped in Potlotek First Nation (Chapel Island, NS) and harvested tip-to-tail.
Hand stitched and made with love.
Size small (sheepskin lined, snowshoe hare cuffs)
Size medium (sheepskin lined, snowshoe hare cuffs)
Size large (sheepskin lined, no cuffs)
Size XL (sheepskin lined, no cuffs)
Please note these are a fairly stiff and very warm mitten.
