Solid and variegated colorways of yak and merino yarn work together to create the Bubbly Mitts. The two-color slip-stitch colorwork pattern gives these mitts a happy vibe, and the warmth and softness of yak and merino are a dream for cold hands in wintertime. You can wear these mitts inside and still perform tasks that require dexterity with ease.
