Fine Hand Knitted Lady's Mittens - Tallinn

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 off-white 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.

The old pair, from where I got the pattern, comes from Tallinn. It was new when it was deposited in the Estonian National Museum under A 559:53. It had a lable attached to them, which said that they belonged to the Museum of Home Handicraft Industry Development Society in 1945.

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