Wool sweaters are donated by Madison-area thrift stores and ReMitts' supporters.

Volunteers launder the sweaters in hot water and dry them in hot dryers, causing the sweaters to shrink or “felt.”

⇐ Prev Next ⇒

Pattern pieces are cut from the felted wool, combining complementary colors and designs.

⇐ Prev Next ⇒

The pieces are machine sewn into mittens into women's and men's sizes.

Each pair is lined with cozy fleece.

Women's mittens are embellished with buttons, which are also donated.
