Today’s Monday Maker is Mackinac Mittens! Mackinac Mittens are made right on Mackinac Island by three Mackinac Island school teachers. They take vintage sweaters and repurpose them into mittens, scarves and hats. Since they are made from vintage wool sweaters, each pair is different! They are adorned with unique buttons to create a fashionable look that will keep you nice and warm.
Once you purchase your wool item from Mackinac Mittens, you will want to wash them just like you would any other wool item, inside out and on cold with a gentle detergent. Reshape and lay flat to dry - remember not to dry clean them!
Mackinac Mittens used to be carried at Little Luxuries, but have been moved to the Artists Market of Mackinac this season. Since the days continue to be chilly, stop in for a warm pair of gloves to keep your hands cozy.
