PDF Instructions - Felted Mittens 00229

This listing is for a printable PDF instruction guide for making wet-felted mittens. Directions for this fun felting project are detailed and illustrated.

MATERIALS NEEDED: Approximately 3 ounces of alpaca or wool batting, a waterproof material to cut your pattern from (I use the subfloor padding for laminate flooring), a washboard, felting board, textured boot tray, bubble wrap or other felting surface, a Sharpie or pen for drawing your pattern, liquid soap, hot water, scissors with a point. Small amounts of alpaca or wool roving can be used to create a design.

Felted alpaca mittens are extremely durable, water resistant, and wind repellent. Alpaca has the ability to adjust to the air temperature, is hypoallergenic, and odor resistant. Felted alpaca has the unique characteristic of having high warmth while being somewhat thinner than much of the felted wool. It also has none of the itch sometimes associated with wool.

Felted alpaca mittens are great for skiing, snow shoveling, recess duty, doing chores, or long winter walks. They also make wonderful gifts!
