Many of the pieces are lined fully or partially with fleece, because as anyone who has braved a Canadian winter knows, come January, one layer alone won't do the job. I bought a pair of these,
So, why would an avid knitter like me spend money on legwarmers and mitts? 'Cause I love the inspiration that comes from looking at such lovely handknits, 'cause I want to support a Canadian company that uses Canadian grown and spun wool, and 'cause I don't have time to knit everything I want or (in this case) need. You can never have enough mitts in the house. A couple of pairs to wear while a couple of more pairs are drying out, while yet another pair is being washed....You get the picture.
