The Mac Mittens are lovely. They are a beautifully soft GOTS organic 100% merino knit perfect for keeping the chills off little fingers.
Infant sizes (up to 24mth) have no thumbs and a cord that you can thread inside sleeves, so even if one or both fall off baby’s hands you don’t lose them. Child sizes (2 – 10 years) have thumbs but no cord. Both infant and child sizes have extra long ribbed cuffs which you can either fold back, or have long inside or over a sleeve to make sure there are no gaps for chills to get in. The rib of the cuffs also helps keep the mittens in place really well.
These are light mittens and do a great job of keeping chills away, but they are not waterproof so if the kid’s want a snowball fight these are better worn in addition to waterproof snow mittens and not just on their own.
They match really well with our Gail Hat.
The Mac Mittens are one of our nui KNITS.
We LOVE our Nui merino wool KNITS. Made with love and care they are beautifully soft, heirloom quality, functional treasures. Made from the finest quality 100% GOTS certified organic merino wool that is as soft on the environment as it is on your baby’s skin. We aim to harness the beauty and intelligence of merino wool in styles that pay tribute to yesteryear while being just as relevant to today.
Where possible we design for longevity. Fold up cuffs, adjustable lengths or long bodies all allow garments to be worn by your child for as long as possible before being handed down to sibling or friend.
Nui KNITS are NOT the scratchy itchy sweaters of your Grandparents era. People are always delighted at just how soft they are. Plus, our organic merino has been treated with a GOTS approved wash to enable them to be easily and safely washed by you. Quick drying, the KNITS are easy care and long lasting.
NUI MERINO MAGIC | PROPERTIES
100% GOTS certified Nui KNITS use GOTS certified organic merino treated with an approved wash to enable easy care. Nui merino is socially and environmentally responsible for the health of your child AND their world.
Temperature regulating The perfect insulator, millions of tiny air pockets in the merino create a micro-climate keeping baby warm when its cold and cool when its hot. This means no overheating and a calm comfortable baby.
Soft & Breathable Merino breathes, wicks excess moisture away from the skin and stays warm when its wet. It’s also hypoallergenic and so very delicate on sensitive new skin. The superfine, long fibers of nui premium organic merino mean it is itch-free, light and soft to the touch.
Fire resistant Yet another reason to love merino. There’s no chance it will catch alight near winter heaters or fire places, unlike synthetics which are flammable and melt onto the skin.
Durable & Fast drying Nui merino does not hold smells like other fibers so needs less washing. Do not soak or bleach. You can hand wash or if you have a delicate wool cycle you can use that on low temperature using a wool safe wash liquid. To dry, simply hang on a drying rack out of direct sunlight. They dry pretty fast.
NUI MERINO MAGIC | CARE:
- Hand wash or Cool Machine wash on a delicate/wool cycle
- Squeeze excess moisture out (do not wring) and dry on a rack out of direct sunlight.
- We recommend a gentle wool safe detergent
- Do not soak or use fabric softeners, bleach or harsh detergents
