Warm Hands, Warm Hearts

haypenny handmitten!

One mom’s freezing (50 degrees and gray in Miami) is another mom’s heaven (a blustery 30 degrees in Boston). But no matter on which side of the jet stream you fall, you’re bitter about winter.

So you’ll warm right up to the Haypenny Handmitten, a mom-invented slipcover for your stroller handlebar.

Made of a soft alpaca wool blend and lined in cozy fleece, it snaps over the handle. The roomy pocket is perfectly positioned for you to stick your hands in and push the carriage.

No more freezing digits, chapped fingers, or dropping gloves in the struggle to answer the phone. Plus, Handmittens are made by female fair trade artisans in Nepal and Peru who receive training, support, and a living wage.

So no one’s left out in the cold.

Available online at haypennydesign.bigcartel.com, $68-$100.
