As winter approaches, we all need a cozy pair of mittens to get us through those brisk late fall days. The Ghostwood mittens are knit with a strand of worsted weight merino cashmere yarn held together with a fine strand of mohair and silk, creating a warm and fluffy, yet still lightweight fabric to keep the autumn chill out. The simple cable pattern flows directly out from the snug ribbed cuff giving these basic mittens a unique and poetic point of interest.
