Knitted to order: Two-Way Mittens

Details

Knitted to order two-way mittens. You can keep your fingers toasty and warm under the flap, or bring them out so you can reach into a pocket for change or a phone. Best of both worlds, without having to take your gloves off!

The good thing about items being knitted to order - you can choose size and colour!

The mittens are knitted on Zitron Trekking sockyarn, 75 % wool, 25 % nylon. This yarn can be machined washed up to 40 degrees Celsius, and makes for lightweight yet warm mittens - they will keep your hands toasty.

All the yarns I use are handdyed by Handarbeitskram (http://www.artfire.com/users/handarbeitskram), who seems to be supplying all my yarns recently. So please do have a look around her Artfire shop for colour suggestions. She also does custom dye yarns, so if there is any colour you would like, just ask, I'm sure we'll find it!

Please note that this item is knitted to order, which means that orders will be processed as follows:
- When placing your order, you will need to provide all the information requested below.
- I will review your order, ensure that I can get hold of the yarns you request, and confirm your order.
- Once I have cofirmed your order and payment has been made, I will consider your order placed and start knitting your item. If for whichever reason I cannot get the materials to knit your item, I will reimburse any payments you may have made.
- After your order is placed, please allow four to six weeks for knitting and delivery. I will notify you when your item is dispatched, which may be earlier than that. If I think it may take longer than that, I will contact you as soon as possible.

Information I will need to knit your mittens:
- Size. I knit these mittens in three standard sizes: small (up to 6 1/2" hand circumference), medium (up to 7") and large (up to 8"). If you have smaller/bigger hands, I may require additional measurements.
- Preferences: Would you like the fingers to be slightly longer? The cuff to be longer than usual? Just ask!
- Yarns. Would you like your mittens in plain yarn, variegated yarn? If you would like a different yarn than Zitron Trekking sockyarn, please contact me before placing your order so we can discuss it.
- Colour. If you find a colour on Handarbeitskram's shop that you like, let me know! If you would rather a colour not listed on Selana's shop, I'm sure we can find a custom dyed yarn for you!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I love winter weather, when it's cris and cold in the mornings. But commuting to work while wearing gloves can be a nuisance, with all the gloves-on-gloves-off moments. I've lost my fair share of gloves because they fell of my pocket after I took them off!

This is my take on the classic solution to the "I want to keep my hands warm but still keep my fingers free" problem.

Policies

Placing an order:

For items that are knitted to order, orders will be processed as follows:
- When placing your order, you will need to provide all the information requested in the item description. This will generally include size and yarn/colours to be used.
- I will review your order, ensure that I can get hold of the yarns you request, and confirm your order.
- Once I have cofirmed your order and payment has been made, I will consider your order placed and start knitting your item. If for whichever reason I cannot get the materials to knit your item, I will reimburse any payments you may have made.
- After your order is placed, please allow four to six weeks for knitting and delivery. I will notify you when your items are dispatched, which may be earlier than that. If I think it may take longer than that, I will contact you as soon as possible.

Payment:

- Payment will be through Paypal only.

Shipping:

- I will ship internationally.

- Insured shipping and/or shipping with a tracking number can be arranged if the buyer requests it prior to placing the order. Both insurance and tracked shipping can be quite expensive, so it's good to have figures in place before the order is placed.

- Listed items will be shipped one to two working days after payment is received.
- Delivery of custom made items will be arranged with the buyer before the order is accepted.

Refunds and Exchanges:

- If you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me directly. I'm sure we can find a compromise.

Additional Policies and FAQs:

- Photos of items are as true to nature as possible. However, monitors sometimes display colours differently. If you are unsure about the colours, you can request a swatch free of charge prior to placing your order. If you don't and later find the colour is not what ou expected, I'm afraid items can't be returned.
