Three Little Kittens...

If you were expecting to read about cutesy, furry, adorable little baby kittens, then let me apologise immediately.  This post is about mittens!  The cutesy baby kittens may have had mittens like these, and they were lucky little kittens if they did, because these mittens are softer, lighter and warmer than their own fur coats!

Pink and Sparkly

They are made from baby alpaca (no alpacas were harmed in collecting this fibre) and kid silk mohair. What is Kid Silk Mohair, I hear you ask? Well, I have put a lot of time into researching this and it seems that it is mohair that comes from a kid (baby goat) and spun together with silk. Rowan describes this blend as Super Kid Mohair so I guess they get it from Super baby goats...

If you really want the complete lowdown, have a look here.

Enough now of this baby cuteness - let me show you some more cutesy mittens...

White and sparkly

The sparkle doesn't really show up here, but the mittens are just a bit sparkly, like the sun on frosted snow...  The fibres used here are kid silk mohair (again) and a fine acrylic with a lurex thread spun into it.

The pattern is my own design, which you can find  for FREE, here, on Ravelry.

If you would like some mittens for your own cutesy kitten, send me an email and I'll make some specially for you!

Lovely mittens Penny and the description of the yarn they're made with just makes them sound even more cosy and warm!
