Clepsydra Mittens

Clepsydra: klep-si-druh“an ancient device for measuring time by the regulated flow of water or mercury through a small aperture.” -Dictionary.com

The Clepsydra mittens have twisted cables that flow from cuff to fingertips. A cabled icord adds interest and rings the wrist. Worked in Creatively Dyed Yarn’s Holi (Wool, Alpaca, Silk) or Berroco's Ultra Alpaca they are a decadent treat for yourself or gift for a dear friend.
