Roll on winter, these fabulous Öjbro merino wool mittens will keep your hands toasty warm when the temperature drops! 

Åse and Ted Öjbro knit their mittens using traditional Swedish folk patterns and colours. Inside they are insulated with three separate layers, one being Thinsulate, a super warm patented material.

It's difficult to convey just how warm these Eksharad soot mittens really are, but once our customers pop them on in our shop they are sold! We also highly recommend them for anyone suffering from Raynaud’s syndrome.
