I originally created this 2012 design using Dale Falk yarn, a solid-colored superwash wool which is no longer available in the US. The two-toned grey mitts shown in the third photo were the original Falk prototype. I’m so pleased with the improvements wrought by redoing them in Shetland wool which is lighter, yet warmer, and has such lovely heathering!
