Swiss wool mittens with leather palm, surplus
Once again the Swiss managed to make something extraordinary out of something ordinary. These are just like your everyday military issue woollen mittens, but made of thick wool with leather palms to give a better grip and more durability. A handy feature for any environment.
Made of real wool and real leather - no synthetics here. Wash in 30 degrees, air dry only. Grease up the leather afterwards to revive it.
All are the same size, about 8,5 - 9,5 (Medium). The leather parts may be quite stiff after decades of storage, a drop of leather oil will sort that out quickly. Remember also that wool is quite forgiving and stretches a bit. However, if you have hands as big as Jaws has, don't even try!
In used, but good serviceable condition. The mittens you get might not be of the original pair (means their leather parts may be of slightly different colour), but work just the same.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
