Appalachian Baby Thrum Mittens and Booties Kit


Add to Cart

Knit a set of cuddly mitts and baby booties using thrum knitting. What is "thrum knitting?" Thrum knitting is a time-honored tradition of knitting unspun wool inside knits to create the feel of the natural insulation of sheepskin. The ends of the fleece are like soft pillows, making the hands and feet cuddly warm. Kit available in Pink or Blue

This kit US worsted weight wool, hand dye it and add Blue Face Leicester fleece from local sheep farmers at Holler Farm. The pattern instructs how to take wisps of the fleece and knit it into the mittens and booties. Included is the ribbon for the finishing touch. It is all packaged in a decorative box—ready to give your natural fiber creation to a lucky baby! If you have not knitted "thrum" before, we have an instructional video here for reference.

Size: Newborn to 12 months
