Large Hand Warmer
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with arthritis in both my hands. At 37 years of age and as I knit for a living it was quite a blow! But, determined not to let it change anything I started working on what I could do to help instead.
Whenever I’ve had pain I always reach for something that’s hot so I tried my trusty hot water bottle but soon discovered that to get relief I had to turn my hand continuously which wasn’t practical. So, I designed and made this hand warmer. It has two layers of wheat and lavender. The wheat heats beautifully in the microwave and the lavender is a wonderful soothing ingredient. You simply heat it up then put your whole hand inside. I sit for an hour a day in front of the tv and use them on my hands and honestly it’s brought me so much relief.
Every Woolly Warmer contains 100% wool felt with an extra layer of 100% merino felt and a generous filling of wheat and lavender.
Measurements are approximately 20x28 cms
