These cozy, warm, cold-climate mittens originated in Labrador and N. Newfoundland for fishermen. Maine Fisherman Wet Mittens belong to this tradition, too. The inner fleece thrums form a warm, fluffy lining that will mat and form to the wearer’s hand. The mitts become denser, more wind and water resistant over time. They can be handwashed, dried and reshaped. The wool will “bloom” and become softer with wear, too.
