I finally found a pair of the adult size Olympic Red Mittens that have been flying off the shelves this year. They are so warm! They are made of thick yarn on the outside and are lined with warm fleece on the inside. These mittens are great for going outside for a walk, skating or watching a hockey game, but I would not recommend these mittens if you were going to be handling the snow because they will get wet. The yarn may also snag on something if you were being active in them. I love the red colour and the maple leaf on the palm of the mittens. They also make these in a junior size for kids. You can purchase the gloves at the Bay or Zellers or you can buy them online from the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Store. I think these are a great deal at $10 a pair and net proceeds goes toward supporting Canadian athletes. They are also a real attention getter because when you go out wearing these, everyone will ask you where you got them. Overall, these mittens are well made, warm, patriotic, and very affordable. They will also make a great keepsake in the years to come!
