A Wooly Mittens are More mitten is more than just a mitten, it’s an individual hand made item that gives back to the community. Every mitten is created from wool sweaters purchased from thrift stores who support battered women, provide scholarships to low-income children and support no-kill animal shelters.
As an Oncology nurse at Northwestern giving back is part of my being. This is why I also use a portion of the proceeds to buy gas and food gift cards for my patients undergoing treatment.
You may notice that a selection of the mittens has a heart on the inside. This heart, although just a small piece of cloth, represents much more. This heart is a symbol of the lives we touch and the love we give.
