Särmä Alpaca Mittens
A pair of comfy and warm mittens. Made from alpaca/merino wool blend, these are warmer than just a lambswool equivalent of the same weight. These are undyed, what you see are the natural shades of the animal!
- 70 % merino wool, 30 % alpaca wool
- A thick, stretchy rib knit
- Feel just a tad small when new
- Made in Finland!
A heavenly blend of alpaca and sheep
Alpaca is a relatively new arrival to the vast wastelands of Finland, but we're slowly getting acquinted with it. We already have alpaca farms here, you know! When you take alpaca and merino wool and combine them to a pair of well thought-out traditional mittens, you literally have something damn nice in your hands!
These are crafted from double layered wool with a stretchy rib-knit. They also work extremely well with leather shell mittens.
Material and care
Alpaca is said to be up to three times as warm as lambswool, won't pile up easily but doesn't contain lanolin either. On the other hand merino wool is extremely fine lambswool and traps warmth like there's no tomorrow - all in all a tried and true material. Both wools are pretty warm even when wet and won't stink easily thanks to their anti-bacterial properties.
The mittens can be machine washed in 40 degrees Celsius with wool cycle. Use of wool care products recommended (ones with lanolin too). Hang dry.
Our merino wool is mulesing-free. With alpaca wool such measures have not been necessary ever, so it's quite ethical by virtue.
The available colours are dark brown and grey. As said before, these are the natural shades of the animals and haven't been treated in any way. They can vary just a bit from batch to batch.
Being untreated, they also have the natural odour of the animal, which will wear off with use. We think this is a lovely scent, kinda reminds us of a farm.
Simple sizes. When you pick the size you usually wear the fit will be just a tad on the small size - this is intentional, as in use these will form to to a perfect shape. If you don't like your mittens "skin tight", get one size larger.
