  1. Thank you for the mitten pattern. I am looking forward to making this with a woolly wool and will probably make a pair for my kiddos and their spouses.

  2. Superwash wool is made by removing the “scales” from wool in its natural state, with chemicals,so the properties of wool are no longer.
    Can also not be referred to as organic or chemical free.

    1. Hi Marilyn!

      I completely agree. May I ask is there something on my blog that suggests that superwash yarn is eco-friendly? -Ida
