Very warm and comfortable

1/29/2018 by Connie

When I purchased these mittens I was a bit skeptical that my fingers would be warm and not freeze. But the mittens actually work quite well. The wool is enough to keep your hands very warm and thus your fingers stay warm also. And I love having my fingers exposed for doing things on my phone or anything else which full gloves would require you to remove. I would recommend these mittens.More > < Less

The mittens need to be longer

They need to be longer, was surprised at how short they were! Otherwise, they are good, very comfortable, a little scratchy at first but you get used to it eventually and then you want to wear them all the time! Just as an aside, my cat won't come near me when I have them on, it's something about the smell, I guess? When I have the money I might get the red pair(but don't hold your breath because my catMore > < Less

These are not anywhere at all as soft as the Alpaca throws I purchased, made by the same people. The throws are absolutely lovely and soft, these are scratchy.More > < Less

About Shupaca

Warmer & Cooler

Besides being cozy, and sustainably-sourced, these alpaca gloves, hats, and scarves have colored wool fibers that create an almost ombre effect when they’re woven. It’s a beautiful detail that drew us to Shupaca’s winter accessories.

Andrew and Lori Schuster first came across alpaca wool during a trip through South America. And when they learned about the benefits of the silky, sustainable material, they knew the wool was the perfect way to pair their eco-conscious, Fair Trade sensibilities with a new venture.
Hence, Shupaca (Schuster + alpaca). Their warm-but-lightweight winter accessories are all made in Peru. Each piece is hand woven on wooden looms by artisans who practice centuries-old techniques, and who receive a fair wage for their work.

The fibers have a unique hollow core that traps little pockets of air to keep you warm without making you feeling stifled. And the wool is sourced from alpacas during the animals' annual shedding. It’s both insulating and breathable (not to mention hypoallergenic, too) which makes it a smart choice for cold weather gear.
