The Benefits of Beaver!

Beaver hide is a beautiful, luxuriously soft and dense, warm pelt, that is sustainably trapped across most of Canada.  These beaver backed mittens are the perfect way to make a significantly warmer mitten without sacrificing any dexterity.  We use the same thick, felted wool inner mitt that we use on our standard mittens, and a durable deerskin, moose or bison palm.  The beaver fur covering the back of your mitt doesn’t interfere with dexterity at all while adding a great deal of extra insulation.

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!

Sizing instructions:

Measure your palm without your thumb around the palm. Compare the measurement with the sizing chart. Select the size that coincides with the chart.  Please measure accurately, as we pre-cut the outer mittens for you.

    Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the great kit. I finally got a chance to finish the beaver mitts and they are incredible! It’s the first time I have worked with beaver and it is awesome. Can’t wait for next winter to try them out!

    Thanks again!
