Stay Warm With Xmittens :: Fingerless Gloves & Scarf Gift Set {#GreenChristmas Grand Prize Sponsor Review}

At Xmittens you will find some awesome fingerless gloves and other neat fashion apparel for men and women. Created by Amber of Amber Coppings Designs, Xmittens takes innovative design and creativity to a new level through comfort, functionality, style, and eco-friendly materials.

As much as I love keeping my hands warm, I hate how much traditional gloves and mittens get in the way. Not to mention how likely they are to end up lost and never found...but Xmittens gloves are here to save the day! Seriously, these are amazing gloves.
I received an Xmittens & Scarf Gift Set in warm grey with teal thread color. It's a very warm grey color, and not quite as purple as they might appear here. I think it's lovely! Made from a vegan fleece with up to 89% recycled polyester content, this material is earth-friendly and perfect for the eco-conscious recipient this holiday season. All materials are also made here in the USA, and of course so is the final product by Amber herself in her Pittsburgh, PA studio. Also, Amber throws nothing away! Scraps are used in other creative projects which shows her unwavering commitment to making a light footprint on the planet.

The combination of the grey and purple is one of my favorites offered at Xmittens, and is a great somewhat neutral combo for a lot of my winter wardrobe. The fleece is incredibly soft, and the craftsmanship is stellar. Definitely made with love and care! All seams are serged together, making the appearance of the Xmittens gloves and scarf truly unique. There are also size options available so Xmittens gloves will work well for men and women.
 As you can see the Xmittens gloves design is truly unique. These are fingerless so your fingertips are exposed and you can stay warm without sacrificing functionality. Your fingers have full range of motion with no material separating each one. On really cold mornings and evenings I've been using these while I write on my blog to keep my hands warm, and also for using my iPhone.  They cover my wrists quite high too so I don't have to worry about a dreaded draft.

Fleece can get a bit warm sometimes, but the open finger design allow for enough airflow to keep you warm but not too warm. I also love that I can wear these while out on a walk or while shopping and still have full dexterity to hang on to my toddler without having to remove them. You could potentially wear them all day for pretty much any activity without ever having to take them off! I have a thing for scarves and this one is also incredibly warm, and the perfect length to wrap around the neck and hang perfectly in the front. As a set, the Xmittens and scarf are perfect for those cold days, indoors and outdoors!
Amber Coppings is a true artisan with a passion for her work and the environment. My Xmittens gloves have been a conversation starter among observers and I'm excited to see that Amber has created convertible Xmittens, Xmittens jackets, hand-dyed apparel and accessories and more! If you're looking for a unique gift this holiday season, I recommend checking out Xmittens. You'll be supporting an amazing small business owner that is so inspired by textiles and would love to send your loved one a beautiful handmade gift this year!
