Men’s Sheepskin Large Mitten - Horton
These Horton Men's sheepskin mittens are very often called "Hunting, shooting, fishing" mittens because they are based upon the traditional mittens that hunters would wear. These "old fashioned" mittens are ironically becoming more popular again as fingers seem to be needed to use the modern phones etc!!
Made from beautifully warm but soft sheepskin they can be folded at the palm and secured in place by buttoning back onto the real horn button thereby allowing fingers to be free for intricate work, then quickly flapping back closed for immediate snuggly warmth.
The knitted woollen cuffs also ensure that pulse points are kept continuously warm, another essential in the cold weather.
These mittens are a generous Medium/Large - 9.5" / 24.5cms fit, meaning that they can be worn over lightweight gloves.
Available in one colour only - best selling traditional Brandy with cream wool.
- Knitted cuffs
- Real horn buttons
Merino Curly Sheepskin (Shearling):- The characteristic of curly sheepskins is one of the most natural, essentially, the fleece is left soft and curly as you would find in nature. The wool is dense and warm, giving your winter coat a snuggly cosy feel.
The pelt side can be finished with either sueded or napalan (leather) surface.
Sueded: OB hand select all their skins to ensure that the suede surface is always soft and sensual, with a slight velvet nap on the suede.
Napalan: Is both a protective and a fashion finish, the leather surface can offer more protection against staining and grubbiness.
In our Somerset workshops every skin is painstakingly matched for every coat, by toning with adjoining skins we ensure that the garment is completely consistent in colour and texture all over, matching is a very skilled process, with many years training to perfect, if the matching process is not carried out to the highest standard, a shearling garment can include many multicoloured panels, OB also match the wool side of the coat as well ensuring that when you open it, inside there is a consistency throughout.
