The pattern “Ringdans”  (Ring Dance) is inspired by the folk song: “the maiden is dancing with red gull ribbons" written by Hugo Alvfén. Designer Åse Öjbro wanted to evoke her childhood memories with her family dancing around the Christmas tree. Three generations holding hands together: children, mothers, fathers, ants, uncles and grand parents. 
Imported from Sweden, Öjbro Vantfabrik mittens are designed by Åse Öjbro who takes her inspiration from traditional Swedish folklore. Åse and her husband Ted, produce a limited number of 100% organic merino wool mittens in their small family factory. Mittens are so warm that they come with a yellow and red caution label:  ”Varning Varma Vantar” (Warning Warm Mitten).


 

  • Extremely Warm and wind resistant! Öjbro Mittens are made with 4 different layers of insulation that keep the wind out and make you feel cozy and warm. Never face the pain of  frozen fingers or Frostbite again. Öjbro mittens are wind resistant but unlike other wind proof mittens and gloves your hands and fingers will still be able to breathe and won't get sweaty.
