The mate to Trail, Lodge by Meghan Babin are mittens for collecting firewood and snowy walks through the woods. These super toasty mittens are made with Forge held doubled for extra insulation from the frosty wind. Made from the bottom up, the graphic motif is repeated on the front and the palms with an afterthought thumb for easy stranding.
