Our Find: Peapack Mitten Company

By

Last year, my aunt gave me a pair of embroidered mittens from Peapack Mitten Company for Christmas. Two winters later, they are still my must-have accessory when it’s chilly outside. Made from 100% wool and lined with polarfleece, they are the warmest mittens I’ve ever owned. (That’s saying a lot, considering I grew up in Canada!)

Roberta Hummel, the owner of Peapack Mitten Company, designs every pair of mittens herself. The 100% wool exterior comes from old sweaters Roberta finds at resale shops. “I love being able to take something that was ‘nothing,’ like a discarded old wool sweater, and turn it into something that brings so much pleasure to people,” says Roberta.

Each pair is one-of-a-kind. Roberta is always on the lookout for recycled sweaters that have loud patterns or cool embellishments, such as zippers. “It’s funny because sometimes the ugliest of sweaters can make the best mittens!”
