Muffs are an elbow-length mitten with open fingers. Great for 18th century outfits with shorter sleeves to keep your entire arm warm on those chilly days and still be able to work with your fingers. These muffs are period accurate with no ribbing. They are shaped to fit your wrist and arm with a knit in gore at the thumb that contours to your hand, just like the original ones. Medium weight preshrunk hand spun yarn is used for these hand knit long mitts.
