Inspired by the gentle descent of freshly fallen snow, these mittens beautifully transition from light hues at the top to deeper shades towards the bottom. This effect is achieved through a harmonious interplay of smaller and larger motifs, evoking the serene scene of snow beginning to blanket the earth. Embracing both style and functionality, these mittens have an extended cuff designed for versatility. Wear it long to shield against the winter elements, preventing snow from intruding, or fold it over for an added layer of cozy warmth. These mittens are a perfect blend of elegance and practicality, promising both comfort and charm on cold winter days.
