New for 2019 – Our Best Wool Yet!

New for 2019, we’ve changed our wool supplier and think this is our finest wool yet!  Our made-in-Canada felted wool mats are soft, thick and WARM!  Gone are the days of choosing between single layer mitts for added dexterity or double layer mitts for added warmth.  We think our current wool strikes an absolutely perfect balance between warmth and dexterity.  Thick and warm enough for the coldest mornings, but soft and flexible enough to be worn all day for a variety of tasks.  You won’t be disappointed!

Using thick felted wool and genuine deerskin your hands will thank you this winter. 100% breathable, your hands will stay dry and comfortable as these natural materials wick away the moisture.

    Hi Dave & Kei
    I purchased and just finished completing two of your mitten kits. One pair for me, and one pair for my 10 year old daughter – I ended up doing most of the sewing… that’s ok, good learning for me. The youtube videos are a big help, and a big thanks for the email support from Kei, that helped keep this first time leather sewer on track. The kits were great, lots of wool, leather, needles etc. and a great instruction book. I am looking forward to using these mittens for a long time, and would recommend these kits to anyone interested in making something of high quality that they can use.
    Thanks again,
    Peter

    I would rate this kit a 10 out of 5. I must say this was the first DIY kit like this I’ve every taken on and it was pretty easy. Had to read the instruction a couple times just to make sure I was understanding them.
    I can’t wait to get home from my cabin and start working on my 10 oz Anorak Kit that is waiting for me. Please feel free to tag my Instagram page at maine_cabinlife.
    Again thanks and look forward to sending pic of my Anorak.
    With warm regards,
    Ken

    I ordered 2 of the mitten making kits with inner wool liners and beaver fur trim. The materials were great quality, easy to sew and the instructions were very easy to follow! The finished mittens turned out better than I anticipated. We get so many compliments on them and many people ask where they can get some! We have used them a few time so far for cross country skiing and they are warm, dry and comfortable. I will be ordering more mitten kits as well as some moccasin kits .
    Thanks for a great product!

    Hi Dave & Kie
    Just confirming the kits arrived a few days ago. I love the burlap wrapping!! Having fun with the mitts, the woolen inners have turned out beautifully; just starting on the leather outers (xmas present for hubby). Gorgeous leather :) Thanks for putting together a great kit!
