Grey yarn - 100% Collie underfur; White yarn - 100% Malamute underfur. The underfur is spinned with sewing reinforced thread and rubbered into 2 threads.
In these children's mittens for more softness and comfort matched in colour merino wool of the same colour as all three types of dog underfur is added. This combination of natural materials gives soft, fluffy and elastic yarn that fits perfectly to such accessories as gloves where softness is important, and combination of grey an white colors serves as a good adornment for this children's accessory.
The idea of creating this pattern supposes dozens of its variants. Not less item's colour-range is achieved by having yarn of different colours and tints. Consequently, these mittens have a chance to be individual. All patterns I design myself. One more advantage of such pattern's knitting: there are two threads while knitting the pattern - the first one creates the pattern, the second thread is pulled out by the back side of the item that creates a double-cloth effect as a result .This helps the mittens to keep more warmth.
The work doesn't have any signs of dog wool smell, as it has two stages of washing: firstly the yarn itself is washed, then the finished work goes washing. I don't use cutted wool, only underfur.
How to keep
Washing and rinsing only in warmed water. Recommended use special wash powder for woolen clothes. After rinsing and wringing out the work should be put on cotton cloth and rolled for better drying. Beforehand the appropriate form for the work should be made. Then the work is leaved for 1-2 hours for natural moisture soak-up. Finally the work is dried up as usual. While meeting the requirements you will have the work in excellent condition for a long time.
