Description

Named in honour of this great composer, the Tchaikovsky Mitts feature a sweet and simple texture which will allow your most exuberant skeins to shine. They are designed to pair perfectly with the Tchaikovsky Hat. Dk weight yarn means they’re a quick and enjoyable knit, even when you think you’re behind on the holiday knitting. The cosy Tchaikovsky Mitts come in two sizes, child and adult, and are easily adjustable to the perfect width and length.

Tchaikovsky’s music is unapologetically emotional and emotionally irresistible The Nutcracker score contains moments of soaring joy, exquisite tenderness, rippling humour and even a hint of menace. Tchaikovsky himself was tremendously introverted and famously shy, but his music never holds anything back. Critics didn’t always appreciate this fearless creativity: the first reviews of The Nutcracker were famously bad. But the audiences loved him and his wholehearted music, and we still do. From the first notes of the overture to the last triumphant flourish, we are transfixed.
