This may just be the last leather mitten you’ll ever need. Made of 100% goat leather with a sewn-in recycled poly liner, this Vermont Glove work mitten can chop a cord of wood or accompany you to the store to stock up on sausages for the afterparty. Or use as your new favorite ski mitten for bombing down the slopes or ripping through the backcountry. Easy on easy off, the toasty goat leather mitten keeps your fingers warm on the frostiest jaunts, and the tough, sturdy glove exterior provides protection from whacks, bangs, bumps and crushes. If we say so ourselves, this is basically the perfect all-purpose mitten.
All of our gloves are primarily made of goat leather (the entire body, palm, thumb, gunn fingers, and back of hand) because it performs the best. Soft, supple and extremely durable. Furthermore, it keeps those attributes after years of wear and many wet/dry cycles. The reason the goat drys soft and supple is because of the inherent natural oils in the goat skin (and subsequent leather) also known as lanolin. Cowhide doesn't have these natural oils, so when it gets wet and then dry the leather become stiff, dry and brittle, thus making it wear out faster and not be form fitting to the hand.
