MIMITENS | Abby the Unicorn
Abby the unicorn is a one of my best characters ever.
Inspired by my friend Abby, this dancing unicorn has a limb difference. It is deeply important to me that we represent limb difference and disability not just in media, but in products as well.
There are millions of people in North American with acquired and congenital limb difference. Yet, only 4 per cent of brands* are designing products for people with disabilities.
Kids deserve to feel that they belong and that is exactly what I am trying to achieve with these lovely little unicorns.
*This is according to Proctor and Gamble.
mimiTENS MITTENS are three layers:
1) 420 denier water-repellent nylon.
2) 200 gram 3M Thinsulate Insulation
3) Organic cotton/bamboo fleece that is custom knit for us here in Toronto.
Our sleeves are custom knit for us in the USA. They are a cotton and Lycra blend.
Wash cold and either hang to try or tumble dry low.
If you want, you can turn the sleeve inside out and then put the mittens on your heat vent over night. That works really well!
DO NOT IRON. DO NOT DRY CLEAN.
