Contemporary knitting kit with everything you need to make your own penguin mittens for babies and toddlers from the finest merino wool

They have extra long cuffs to stop them from falling off and the wool is non-itchy and machine washable. The monochrome penguin faces are loved by babies who are drawn to high contrast and by toddlers who enjoy the fun faces peeking out of their sleeves. They are also really satisfying to make too.
