    Comments about UPCYCLED SWEATER MITTENS:

    I got these as a gift for someone else and I was concerned that 'upcycled' means 'used.' I didn't want to give them if the colors were faded or there were fabric pills, etc. But now I think upcycled means they took old sweaters that nobody wanted and turned them into something better. These look great and I'm told they're very comfortable. They were a big hit under the Christmas tree.

      I bought one for a friend and one for myself. Will be very warm this winter. The size was a bit big. Love that it was made in the USA.

        No more "cold hands, warm heart" excuses! My hands always seem to get cold first and these mittens really keep them warm. They are wool, but have wonderful polar fleece lining too. I use it in the car for those cold, cold mornings, or dog walking, or bike riding.

        love the idea, but the price is high, and there seems to be no control over color sent

        Recycle and keep warm...PERFECT!!!

        This is a very cool concept but the price is much too high.

        I'd rather have reclaimed sweaters made into armwarmers, not ugly mittens.

        Lisa

        The price is high because mittens go missing

        I don't really like the look of these and I think they are much to high of a price

        the colors are great! They may be a little pricey but they are handmade!

        Thanks for the feedback, gf! If these mittens are added to our assortment, we'll work to give the customer as much control over the color they order as possible. Since the mittens are made of reclaimed materials, there is no way to choose the exact color. We may be able to narrow the choices down a bit by range, depending on the materials available. Check out item# 20121 (Sweater Potholders) to see how this might be done.

        Awesome idea, but they are way too expensive (maybe if they included a hat?) and the colors don't even coordinate.

        Love that these are recycled/reclaimed material and that they are made in the USA, but they are too expensive. Also would like to be able to chose from a color "family".

        These are awesome, and I would LOVE to have them.... but just like the fingerless arm cover gloves from last winter... I agree with everyone... they just a bit too expensive. Especially since they are all different and you do run the risk of getting a combination that you don't like.

        Nice idea but ugly.

        Fun, fun, fun! Very eclectic, bohemian.

        I agree. Nice idea but very ugly

        I love these mittens! I buy them every year as gifts for adults and kids (I live where these are manufactured). The story doesn't tell you this but they are lined with really high quality, warm fleece.
