Finely Hand Knitted Lady's Mittens - Juuru

Price: 72,00
Description: Knitted with three different colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The colorful yarns are hand dyed, 100% wool. The grey is natural undyed sheep color. Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK-weight yarn. The three layers of yarn make them perfect to block wind and wear in a cold winter day.

This pattern comes from Juuru area, which is located in Northern part of Estonia, in Rapla County. I found the pattern at the National Museum of Estonia under A649-139. The old pair is in men size. The journal says that the knitter made them for her nephew, who studied at Tartu University, but he did not like them at all. Hence they were brand new at the collection time in 1960-1970's. Too sad ... although I think they are gorgeous.

Women's size, also available for custom order in any sizes.
