It's official! The Mitten Company has sold out of Deb's 2017/18 mittens in a little over 7 hours after opening up shop. What a fitting tribute to Deb. She lived life in the fast lane and wouldn't want it any other way. And what's even more exciting is that we are able to donate about $918 (total after all our expenses were paid or reimbursed) to the American Brain Tumor Association! Woo Hoo! We couldn't have done it without all of your help, support, and caring nature of our beloved customers.
Speaking of cold, today’s Friday’s Five Things is all about five things I count on to help stay warm and combat the winter blues!
Do you remember your grandmother or your mother snipping the buttons off shirts that were headed for the rag basket and then collecting them in jars? Possibly there were a couple of jars filled with different sizes and colors of buttons on her shelf that maybe you were lucky enough to be able to play with.
What a great start to mitten season! Now that we're officially in a cold spell, we know those hay-rides, apple-picking and pumpkin farms are perfect times to warm your hands with our mittens :) Read more...
Wool options can be overwhelming and confusing. Which option is warmer? Which option is softer? What is the best overall mitten choice for a typical American winter? Let's answer some of these questions.
Thanks so much for a tremendous Christmas season. It is just the start of mitten season in November and December. We hope all of you received your mittens on time. We also hope your gifting recipients were happy with their warm mittens.
What can we say? This year's Black Friday & Cyber Monday were AMAZING. We cannot thank all of you enough for the continued loyalty and support. Although you guys have literally wiped us out of mittens (for now), we'll slowly be adding more pairs leading up to another big sale before Christmas :) Be sure to check in periodically for new products, or sign up to our Mitten Mail email list for instant notifications on new products! The sign up form can be found in the footer of our website. We'll leave you with a pic of some of our orders today (Monday). We promised same-day shipping, and we delivered!
It's been a busy October! Thank you to the many mitten customers who helped us contribute to breast cancer research. The first annual Mitten Company "Pink Mitten" promotion netted a $50 check sent to this worthy cause. We contributed 10% of the sales from pink mittens sold during the month of October. Next year, we have a goal to sell 50 pair of pink mittens!
I am often asked if our mittens are really washable. The short answer is YES! Our mittens are made from 100% wool sweaters that have been washed and dried in hot temperatures to "felt" the wool. Felting the wool closes up the air holes between the fibers so the cold air can not get in. Then, the mittens are cut out and sewn together. Feel free to wash and dry these mittens along with your regular laundry without fear of them shrinking. You will be thrilled with the ease of cleaning our wool mittens.
