Happy New Year! Here’s a sure fire cure for the winter blues.
After making my gauntlets last January, I had promised myself to make a shorter pair as well and here they are. These rather plain Jane’s are made with 3.5 oz deer hide, fully beaver fur lined (re-claimed) and my favorite part, Alaskan fur seal cuffs (also re-claimed).
These are very light compared to the gauntlets and a real treat to wear driving or in and around town. The beaver fur liner does the job nicely, so far tested to -36 c (that’s -32 f) and my digits stayed nice and toasty.
The pattern is the same one I used for the gauntlets with only a change to the cuff.
It’s going to be hard coming up with something to top these next year.
