This striped felted wool oven mitt is hand made in Nepal and is a fair trade product. It is approximately 10" x 6" and has a tab for hanging. It is beautiful and durable, and its purchase helps women in Nepal earn a living wage. Felted wool is a good insulator with a high burn point, and is durable yet flexible; qualities that are ideal for an oven mitt. Because each of our felted wool oven mitts is handmade, colors may vary slightly from the one pictured, but they all have bright and cheerful stripes. Made from 100% wool. For best results, hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
