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, 4 & 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.
