Dachstein Woolwear extreme warm 100% wool mittens are made from boiled wool in a weave so dense they're almost waterproof and have been used by mountaineers for their incredible warmth even when they're covered with snow and ice. Extreme cold weather gear famous for decades in the Alps is now available to you. Made with "4 ply strands wool" instead of 3 so these Dachstein boiled wool mittens are extremely warm. Dachstein wool mittens or mitts are the best quality organically made boiled wool mittens you can buy!
Material: Made in Austria of 100% wool.
Sizes: Available in sizes 6.0 to 9.5 inches
Mary Jo took our Dachstein Woolwear mittens to Iceland March 2016 and was asked repeatedly from other tourists where they could buy the mittens because all the local mittens were not warm enough. See her picture with left hand "mitt" visible.
"I love my new mittens, just what I was after and they fit perfect. Your hand written thank you note is amazing, never have I gotten a thank you note just for buying something! Very cool! I do intend to buy one of your heavy sweaters in the near future, a bit spendy but I'm sure well worth it. So far I am very impressed and tell others. Thanks again, Chris S."

Wool weight or wt. is the centimeter length of one gram of wool. For example, 4.4 wt. is 4.4 cm of a ply of wool is needed to weigh one gram. So a wool weight of 7.0 wt means 7.0 cm of ply length is needed to weight a gram, making 4.4 wt wool heavier than 7.0 wt.
