Dawn designed these mitts to withstand the kind of chilly weather we get here from November to April (and sometimes beyond)…worked at a really tight gauge with strong lines of cabling, these will keep your hands warm, while still leaving your fingers functioning. Or, as is the case with our team during a Maine winter, they make a great layer over other mittens or gloves for extra protection on those most frigid days.
