Fingerless mitts provide your hands with extra warmth and protection when you’re exploring the wild. Here, a simple knit and purl combination does two things: it creates a textured fabric, and it avoids unwanted pooling in a variegated yarn. The special yarn used in this design blends wool, nylon, and Outlast, a viscose fiber that reacts to the wearer’s body temperature for maximum softness, strength, and comfort.
