Product description

Keep warm without sacrificing functionality with the elegant pragmatism of the Ballantine mitts. A dense, cabled braid anchors the top of these fingerless mitts, fading to small twists on the palm for fuss-free, everyday use. Slightly elongated cuffs are perfect for tucking into your coat sleeve, while a thumb gusset provides just the right fit — all in Arbor’s springy Targhee wool or Dapple’s dreamy blend of Organic Cotton and Merino.

Complete the set with the Chenier vest’s matching motif.
