Alternative to Dachstein Mitts

20+ years ago, I purchased some, what I remember being called, "Dachstein" Mitts, a tightly woven woolen mitten from Austria. 2 years ago, I finally trashed them. Is there something similar available?

Hi @edcrsn - Thanks for reaching out. We love hearing that you were able to use your mittens for 20+ years! They probably went on many wonderful adventures.

We currently offer the Fox River Double Ragg mittens, which you may find to be a nice substitute. They are double thick wool mittens with a plush interior lining. While they are made to handle cold temperatures, they are not as tightly woven as your previous pair. 

If you are looking to get another pair of Dachsteins, there is a small US distributor for the brand called The Sweater Chalet. It looks like they have a few different Dachstein wool mitten options available right now. 

Thanks again for bringing this question to the community. Hopefully this helps!
