Based upon the work of Diderot and surviving mid to late 18th century accounts of military woollen mittens, these mittens have been produced using the most recent research, noted within my mitten pattern also available within my store at https://tccunha.ca/products/18th-century-wool-mitten-pattern.
These mittens are hand sewn inside and out, using nothing linen thread and documented varieties of wool for both their exterior shell and interior lining. Often produced in the same colour and material as that of British Regimental facings, the mittens are available in numerous colours upon request. If there is a specific colour that you require, send us a message and we would be glad to assist you in finding a suitable material. I currently have forest green, crimson red or beige (with the lining being pieces from a wool blanket) available at the moment. Let me know which colour and size you would like at checkout (sizing is Small/Medium or Large/Extra Large).
