Fear not the icy winds and snow, Öjbro's merino wool Lycksele mittens will keep your hands toasty warm even through the chilliest of winters.
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 Lycksele mittens really are, but once our customers pop them on in our shop they are sold!
One mitten features a tiny yellow warning triangle - "Varning: Varma Vantar!" - "Warning: Warm Mittens!"
Made in Sweden.
The Nordic people have been knitting socks and mittens for centuries, the earliest sign of knitting dates back to the 13th century.
Åse and Ted Öjbro produce their beautiful knitwear in Ulricehamn, Västergötland, Sweden. They are passionate about keeping the traditional art of jacquard knitting alive. Their striking designs are steeped in tradition and history yet fit into any modern-day wardrobe.
Åse Öjbro took inspiration for the intricate red and grey Lycksele design from a traditional Laplandian folk pattern. Ted, the other half of the talented duo, just had to work out how to knit this intricate pattern and create the mittens - as always they are a triumph!
The Lycksele design is named after the municipality of the same name in Västerbotten County in Swedish Lapland.
