Seal Skin Mittens
These are my new seal skin mittens! I do not believe there is a soul in the lower 48 that would appreciate these beautiful mittens like I do unless you came here to see what it took to make them. I bought them from a beautiful young lady from the village Shishmaref that made them herself...they are the warmest things I have ever had on my hands--seal skin is what most of the Eskimos wear here. Here is my lovely arm modeling them....I wanted to take a picture of me and "big green" wearing these beauties but Iran was not home to take my picture...so here I stand with me and the camera. The black fur is beaver--super soft and warm. I can not wait to try them out when it gets -30...I will tell you if my hands froze or not.
