I am so glad I found these treasures on Novica. They make it so much more comfortable to go out in the bitter cold & feed the animals when I can have my fingers free to grasp bags to open & still stay warm. I also use them in the house (older home, drafty rooms) when I'm on the computer & these mittens keep my fingers toasty when the weather is chilly. These are very well made, you will be glad to have them come winter!
Very pretty leaf pattern and detail. I wanted a mitt that had good coverage for my thumbs, I have a bit of stiffness when it gets cooler and I love the sheen and silkiness of this Alpaca. For me the weight and thickness is perfect, enough to keep warm but not to bulky to hinder. :) The color I see on my screen is exactly the color of mitts I received, a deep lavender. Just beautiful!
I have been wearing the gloves on the colder days and they are so soft and warm. The thumb area is a little tough to get your thumb in and out, but it is not a deal breaker for me. Just be careful with your rings. The gloves snag easily. I love the colors and the weight of the gloves so I adjust to the rest. I would not hesitate to buy another pair.
