Wool Mittens by Kelli Hosenfelt

Posted by Jade Dirks on

Hello!  My name is Kelli Hosenfelt, creator of Kelli's Wool Mittens.   Back in 2014, I quit my job of 12 years to become a full-time, stay-at-home mom to my 3 children, current ages 12, 10 and 4. 

With a newborn and 2 busy kids, I was looking for a hobby I could do from home in my "free-time".  A friend showed me her wool mittens she had made and offered to show me how to make them.  I loved the idea of re-purposing old wool sweaters into something useful and fun!  

 After gathering my materials and several trial & errors, I made my first pair of mittens!   I was so excited I wanted to share my mittens with others.  I started selling my mittens in stores and local vendor fairs.  Through those avenues, I've had requests to make other sizes so I created patterns of different sizes.  Currently, I make toddler, teen and adult sizes.  I take custom orders as well.   
I love that my children see me creating and selling.  I love when they get excited about something they've created and want to sell with me.  And I love hearing positive feedback from my customers! Thank you for supporting me!  
**Kelli's Mittens are super warm & cozy! We have an assortment of colors & patterns! They run $26 a pair. Head to our facebook page to see how you can when $6 off of a pair of mittens!
