Keep your hands warm wearing a pair of our Native Tui design 100% merino fingerless gloves, or as we like to call them, Merino Mitts! Designed and made here in New Zealand, our Merino Mitts are the perfect winter accessory for every women. Being made with NZ merino, they are also breathable which allows them to be worn both during cooler spring and autumn days without your hands becoming sweaty.
Made with 100% NZ merino jersey (weight 170GSM, Micron 20.5), our mitts are warm and cosy to wear, but without the bulk of traditional woollen gloves. Lightweight and easy to care for, they are available in a variety of colours and lengths, most with hand screenprinted NZ inspired designs too. Being fingerless mitts, they fit most hand lengths and widths, making them one of winter's most versatile women's accessories.
Our merino mitts are suitable for wearing during a range of activities when traditional gloves would be too bulky or not provide the necessary grip, such as texting or typing. Being merino, they are also able to be worn with other long sleeved clothing, without fear of getting too hot or itchy.
Ideal for sending to friends and family overseas, keeping as a souvenir of your New Zealand holiday or simply treating yourself to a pair to wear at home or work, you too will fall in love with Jill Main Merino Mitts! For the ultimate in winter warmth, team your pair with one of our merino scarves and ponchos.
