One of my favorite customers (admittedly I have a number of them) handed me a gift bag containing a pair of wool/cashmere mittens with a “Happy New Year” card last month – and that gift has, seriously, changed my life.
I haven’t had a pair of good mittens in – oh – easily 40 years and I’d totally forgotten how much warmer they keep your hands than gloves. 10 degrees with a wind chill of – 5 degrees? No problem for me and my mittens! Take the dog for a 20-30 minute walk during these cold months? My mittens and me got it!
I love my mittens and can’t believe I’ve lived so long without ‘em!
