Dyed Single Strand Wind-Block Mittens

These super-soft mittens were knit for Ballintotas Alpacas by local artisan Kathleen Carty. They feature fibre from our herd, in DK weight, with an additional strand of hand-dyed lopi yarn carried behind. This makes these mittens more wind-resistant than a simple knit. The variegated nature of the lopi means that the colour pattern in these mitts in non-symmetrical. Definitely a great choice for those who like something a little more interesting!

Due to the size variability common to hand-knits, it is best to try these on in-store to determine the best fit.


Do not put alpaca in hot water, agitate it, or dry in a dryer or on a heat source.

Soak in room temperature water with gentle detergent or shampoo for 30 minutes, rinse, gently squeeze away excess water, and lay flat to dry.

Wipe soiled area with a damp cloth free from soap, and allow it to air dry. Gently brush fur when dry and shake to fluff.
