NEW Fleece Artist Wonder Woolen Thrum Mitten Kits

Fleece Artist Wonder Woolen Thrum Mitten Kits

Thrumming is a very old technique that is seriously fun and functional. Small tufts of roving (wool that hasn’t been spun into yarn yet) are knit into the garment creating a fuzzy warm layer on the inside and irresistible dots of colour the outside. As you wear them, the thrummed roving felts down, keeping your hands warm and cozy (take note dog owners, these are ideal winter dog walking mitts). The mittens will be the colour of the yarn and the thrums (roving) will peek through. Each kit is individually hand dyed, no two will be exactly alike. Kit does not include needles:  5.5mm/US4 double-pointed needles

Note: I think the pattern provided has a mistake (that’s why our sample looks a bit weirdly) so we have included a correction in the kit (so your mitts don’t look weirdly)

Wonder Woolen Yarn

Wonder Woolen is a new yarn from Fleece Artist. It is 100% regionally sourced wool (25 Micron, Woolen Spun). It is heartier and sturdier than the yarns they have used in the past for their thrum kits, and will wear harder, last longer, and keep you warmer. They are so happy with this new yarn at Fleece Artist that they have discontinued all of their other thrum kits. Wonder Woolen is also thicker than the previous yarns used, and knits up faster on larger 5.5mm/US9 needles.
