When designing these fingerless mitts, Kristen imagined that “These gauntlets are something that Freyja (sometimes called Gefn) would have worn while traveling under one of her aliases. The SweetGeorgia Superwash DK has a firm hand with plenty of structure, creating a mitt that retains its shape well, but is soft to wear."
