FREEBIE Thrummed Mitten Kits

Fleece Artist Thrum Kit DISPLAY 2

Fleece Artist Thrum Kit DISPLAY

Fleece Artist Thrummed 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).

Each kit is individually hand dyed, no two will be exactly alike and the mittens will be the colour of the yarn and the thrums (roving) will peek through. This kit can also be used to make Thrummed Socks (great as house-socks or slippers) and does not include needles (3.5mm/US4 double pointed needles).

Kit Includes

  • Pattern & instructions  (or you can download them free HERE)
  • Yarn: Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester Aran, 125g (100% wool)
  • Roving: 60g (100% wool)
  • Sizes included: Child, Adult Small, Adult Medium, and Adult Large.

Fleece Artist Thrum Mitten Kit

 
Fleece Artist Thrum Mitten Kit $29.50
Burrrr, it’s cold out there!  If you’ve been finding yourself muttering insults directed to the weather, you may be a good candidate for a pair of thrum mittens. Thrum mittens are super warm and soft becuase you weave in roving (unspun wool) and you knit them. It sounds complicated, but it’s not, I promise! 3.5mm double pointed needles are required (not included in kit). Say hi to happy hands!

Kit Comes With

  • Pattern
  • 125g Fleece Artist Blue Face Aran Wool
  • 60g Merino Silver Roving
