Dont Care Badger Mittens

Regular price $20.00

When you wear these mittens, you might embody some of the spirit of the badger. The world is yours to dominate, and if those around you are lucky, you will leave a bit of scraps behind for them.

At the very least, you can still look down at your hands and have a laugh!

Drunk Girl Designs developed this pattern using traditional Nordic and Scandinavian knitting techniques, then added their own twist.

These are a roomy size women’s medium or a men’s small. There is plenty of room within the mittens to also wear gloves, for those of you who need to double up for adequate warmth.

For larger or smaller mittens, I recommend going up or down in needle size.

Packaging

Wherever possible we will use paper packaging

However, Europe, US, Canada and Rest of World, it is not always possible to use paper due to the soft contents of the package.  If this is the case, we use 90 micron polythene mailbags.  Recycling guide: LDPE 4 (Low density polyethylene).

Low-density polyethylene, or LDPE, is number 4-coded plastic, commonly used to manufacture shopping bags, dry cleaning bags and flexible bottles and lids.  Although not as commonly recycled as number 1 polyethylene terephthalate or number 2 high-density polyethylene, LDPE recycling is gaining traction as its post-consumer uses increase. One use is combining recycled LDPE with wood to create composite lumber suitable for light applications. All these plastics can be recycled into different products, but of the three, LDPE results in the most greenhouse gas savings when it's recycled.  

But please - do not put number 4 LDPE plastic into a recycling bin unless you are sure it is accepted. Otherwise, you could contaminate an entire batch of recycled plastic.
