My Bella’s Mittens are already off the needles and have been my constant companion on chilly January commutes. (Yes, having decided I’d be taking a break from knitting accessories this winter I promptly cast on some mittens. A smooshy skein of super-chunky Artesano British Wool in a shade of teal that goes perfectly with my tartan coat? Well how could I resist!)
Ah, wool. Fancy fibres and luxury blends are all very well, but when it comes down to it nothing compares to good old-fashioned unadulterated sheep.
