We are working to find a new maker for our Mittens.
Our Gauntlet Mittens, lined with Natural Mouton Fleece, will keep your hands warm during periods of extreme cold or lower activity. These Mitts enable some gripping but you can't do much more than squeeze. And they will be too warm if you are generating your own heat via physical exertion.
The pictured Mitts are available at $400. We will need to know some specifics about the size of your hands and the thickness of the jacket the gauntlets will accommodate.
The Mitts shown and described here can be viewed as a guide ... each pair is made to order by an Individual Artisan Leather Craftsman, so custom touches are not a problem but may affect the price.
Interior is lined completely with ultra-plush Mouton Fleece. The Mouton Fleece is a natural pelt ... the leather of the pelt makes the Mitts completely windproof but also means they don't breathe, so you must be careful not to allow moisture to build inside the Mitt if you exert yourself
Mouton interior and Fabric exterior can be separated for cleaning or quicker drying, as pictured
Wrist tension can be adjusted via the Strap and Buckle
D-ring on the cuff for attachment of a cord. A traditional Alaskan approach is to run a leather thong thru the sleeves and across the back, with a Mitt attached to each end of the thong. The Mitts can then be shaken off the hands and left dangling until needed again. We can supply the thong as an option
D-Rings and Buckles are handworked brass from Winter Park, Florida
Mittens are cut wide to go over jacket sleeve
Pictured Mitts are 16.5 inches (41 cm) long and 6 inches (15 cm) across the palm and 8 inches (20 cm) at the forearm opening
Each of these Mittens weighs 13 ounces (367 grams)
Made to Order by an Individual Artisan Leather Craftsman ... your own design ideas are welcome! Just about every feature can be customized.
