Which Wool? – The Mitten Company
which wool should you choose?

 

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 below. We'll first start off with a down and dirty comparison chart:

Softness ●●● ●●● ●●○ ●○○ ●●●
Warmness ●●● ●●○ ●●● ●●● ●●○
Smoothness ●●● ●●● ●●● ●○○ ●●●
