Product description

A panoply of texture greets the wearer of the dynamic Limn mitts. Evoking the roping thickness of jungle vines, these bold fingerless mitts derive their three-dimensionality from the artful juxtaposition of clever stockinette welts and humble garter stitch. Designed with practicality in mind, welts twine exclusively across the back of the hand, leaving the palm flat for a more comfortable grip. Offered in three sizes, garter stitch’s natural flexibility ensures a forgiving fit for all your loved ones. Knit Limn in one color or highlight the welts with a pop of contrast for even more textural emphasis.
