You hold a strand of mohair together with a strand of wool to make warm mittens. The yarns are hand dyed in Halifax.
We have kits in many different colour combinations.
This is how the Yarn Harlot describes them. She has a great explanation on knitting Thrum Mitts...
A thrum is a little wisp of unspun fleece or roving that is knit into your project every so often. Thrumming makes the insides soft and fuzzy, and freakishly warm. This technique is most often associated with Canada’s Province of Newfoundland and Labrador (where they know warm)
There are also many patterns available online. You can use a skein of Cascade 220 with some great hand dyed fleece from Manos del Uruguay or Malabrigo.
