Description

Jeanne made this pair of Charcoal & White Sweater Mittens. You know your favorite sweater that you can’t wear anymore because it has a huge hole in it? You have it in mind? Is it hiding in the back of your closet? I wouldn’t be able to throw it out either.

Many people have been recycling these sweaters by making them into mittens. Jeanne and her team of mitten-makers use a technique to felt the recycled sweaters (so that they won’t change in size), cut them into the correct shape, line them with fuzzy fleece and adorn them with (sometimes vintage) buttons from the recycled sweaters. Your hands will feel like they are floating in a warm, fuzzy cloud. These recycled sweater mittens come in handy during our cold, Maine winters.

Jeanne makes them in four sizes ranging from small to extra-large. These Charcoal & White Sweater Mittens are a size medium, which fits many. From loud patterns to simple stitching; crazy, vibrant jewel tones to warm, neutral colors; the options are endless, and these warm, cozy mittens are a tribute to those favorite sweaters we will always hold onto.
