Named after the Alderman Apple which is a similar colour to these mitts! The Alderman is an English (possibly Scottish) apple thought to have originated in the 1920s.

Thick sumptuous cables combine with the luxurious baby alpaca to keep your hands
toasty and stylish. They can easily be made unisex by swapping the picot cuff for a plain hem or ribbed cuff.
