Above is an image from selecting some material to use for a pair of winter mittens I’m making. I figured out that I don’t have any warmer gloves/mittens for winter, so I want to make a pair myself.
I’ve had a look at some reconstructions of historical gloves that were described and in the Danish Middelaldercentret bulletin for spring 2014 and will use one of the models as the foundation for my mittens.
An old piece of red wadmal, probably some decorative ribbon, some small embroidery and a softer kind of lining are the materials I plan to use. Not aiming for authentic medieval reenactment here, just something inspired by it.
What beautiful thing will you make or start making today?
