Buy into Buffalo: Recycled Felted Woolen Mittens

These mittens are not the bland, loosely-knit mittens that your great aunt used to make for you each holiday season. Rather they are colorful and cozy while still being handmade right here in Buffalo by The Glass House. The mittens are created from recycled sweaters, and at the same time they look and feel brand new! As the snow falls outside, think of the people on your holiday gift list who would appreciate such a thoughtful and environmentally friendly present.

Not to mention that every pair is made in Buffalo, and is stitched with felt to keep the hands of a loved one warm. It would be nice to see more of these types of recycled products sold in local shops. These eye-catching mittens can be found at Half & Half on Elmwood Avenue, along with an incredible selection of women’s clothing and accessories. Each pair is guaranteed to be unique and retails at $28. This is the fifth locally-made gift in this holiday gift-giving series – click here to see previous picks.
