Animals with opposable thumbs: koalas, some frogs, possums, primates, some birds, and a whole lot of dinosaurs. Animals who created the perfect sherpa-lined covering to keep their hands warm while allowing the opposable thumb to do its thing: just us humans. Ida's Mittens perfectly augment hats, jackets, and bags, and they're made right in the USA by the hands of real people, with real opposable thumbs.
To find your mitten size, measure (in inches) your dominant hand around the widest part - usually this is your knuckles - excluding your thumb. Round up when between sizes.
Hands down the warmest mittens I have ever owned. They are actually too warm for me on mild days, but I plan accordingly and have thin mittens or gloves when needed. I do not leave home without these on harsh Wisconsin winter days!
I bought these during the pie sale last year and anxiously waited to be able to wear them. They are so warm!! My hands are always cold due to a medical condition, and these are the only mittens I have ever had that my hands are toast warm whenever I wear them. I even wore them tailgating at the last football game at Lambeau this January and my fingers never got chilled. Thank you Stormy Kromer!!
I've had these mittens since October and wear them often. The inside is so soft and the outside is quite strong as it is wool. I love that there is leather on the palm, so I can wear the mitts driving too (I have the coldest hands on the planet and wear mittens all fall and winter). I bought the raspberry color and get a lot of compliments! The nice pop of color is a bonus - most important to me is that the mitts are cozy and warm.
I received a pair of these mittens as a present---and they have become my "go-to" pair of mittens/gloves on cold days! My favorite thing about these mittens are they block all of the wind. The lining is so comfy, and makes it so none of the wool actually "touches" my skin. Love them!!
My husband got me these mittens for my birthday and I don't want to take them off. Great fit, super comfortable, super warm, and they look pretty handsome too! I love them, and they have made our long winter spell much more enjoyable. -Kelley
These are warm and cozy mittens that wear well and look great. I even talked my husband into getting a pair and he loves them but don't call him Ida! We get some cold weather here and these mittens keep my hands from freezing and are wonderful on horseback.Yippee I O buy ,eh? -GRK
These are comfy and warm and a perfect match for my Stormy Kromer flower hat. And made right here in Michigan, so you can't go wrong buying these, eh? :) -Mar2d2
