Aran Fingerless Mittens: Purple handknit Irish wool mittens; original design. Made in Ireland. Fingerless gloves. Handknit purple mittens.


Aran Fingerless Mittens: purple handknitted fingerless mittens, from beautiful pure Irish wool. From Sonas Yarns ( in Co. Donegal, Ireland, this is a true Aran yarn; beautifully robust and warm, with a gorgeous vibrant colourway. 'The yarn is produced in an antique woollen mill in County Donegal, using traditional techniques that have been handed down through generations.'

I knitted these Aran fingerless mittens from my own original cable design. As a knitter from the Aran Islands, I love taking traditional designs and updating them a little for modern comfort, style and knitting techniques. The mittens were knit seamlessly in the round.

They measure 8 1/2 inches (22 cm) in length from cuff to end; with two inches (5 cm) from the thumb-hole to the edge. In circumference; they measure around 7 inches (18 cm) unworn, but have nice stretch in them.

Thank you so much for looking; please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
