Thick, fulled Schladming wool makes these expedition mittens not only water-repellent but also warming even in wet conditions. Fulling is a desired and targeted process of matting the wool. The fabric thickens and shrinks. The result of the fulling process is a very dense and solid fabric. The Himalaya Mitten is also perfect as a second layer in combination with windstopper gloves. In case you would like to use the Himalaya Mitten as a second layer, you should order them one size larger.

Schladming wool
The strong mountain sheep's wool obtained in the Schladming area (Austria / Styria) is the reason of the extraordinary quality of the Schladming woolen goods. Originally the wool was loosened up by the farmers with two planks studded with nails, threads were spun by a spinning wheel and after that they were woven on a loom. This fabric was fulled and pounded in warm water by a water powered fulling tool with wooden hammers. Due to that process the fabric shrinks and each hair becomes felted with each other - the water-repellent and wind-resistant wool-fabric is the result. In that process the fabric shrinks together to over the half of its original size but it also gains double the thickness. This explains the exceptional resistance and durability of this material. Nowadays soap or chemicals are used to speed up the process.
