When the weather outside is frightful, these delightful and sustainable woolly gifts will warm hands and hearts alike, even if you can’t knit a stitch. From sculptural, pompom-bedecked helmets to glittery, foot-warming slippers, we’ve got your gift list covered from head to toe—and not one Snuggie in sight.
Inspired by by silhouettes from the Roaring ’20s, Claudia Schulz’s handcrafted wool-felt toppers are part eye candy, part noggin warmers. June, in particular, has a festive bent, with a light blue star emblazoned across its side and a kicky pompom perched on top.
Hand-knitted from hand-combed yak fibers sourced directly (and fairly) from Tibetan herders, Shokay’s Mooncake Earmuffs derive their name and design from a traditional sweet-and-savory Chinese pastry. Myriad color options are at your command, with evocative names like Alpine, Nocturne, and Himalayan Sunset.
ALL YOU NEED IS GLOVE
Sweeter than spun sugar, Giant Dwarf’s Petit Glovettes are handmade to order from recycled cashmere. Customize the color of your mitts, from the upper glove and chunky French cuff to the hand-cut felt petals and hand-pressed buttons.
