Hand-made wool mittens for a cause.
One of the many ways you can support WBI is by purchasing a pair (or two) of hand-made wool mittens. Each pair is made from repurposed wool sweaters. The sweaters are “felted” (shrunk) so that the knit is nice and tight, adding to the mittens warmth. Then the sweaters are cut into mittens, along with polar fleece lining, and sewn together by Sue. Each pair is unique and super warm as she uses sweaters that are 75% wool or more. Mitten season tends to run from late October thru the end of December. We will be posting the schedule of craft sales that we will be at on the website, as well as our Facebook page. You do not have to wait for fall to purchase mittens! Sue always has an inventory on hand; and so just reach out to Sue to coordinate a meeting and we can get you set up with as many pairs of mittens as your heart desires. If you have a sweater that is special to you, one that perhaps holds some sentimental memories, Sue is happy to create “Memory Mittens” for you out of your special sweater.
All the proceeds from the sale of these mittens go directly to WBI.
