We are suppose to have a REALLY bad winter this year. That being said, the older I get, the more I hate to be cold. My Hubs too. He used to love the cold weather, but now, he dislikes it as much as I do.
While we were in Helena, Montana, my friend Manzanita had a pair of really nice sheepskin mittens. When we walked, her hands were warm and mine were freezing. She told me I needed to go to High Plains Sheepskin and buy myself a pair of warm mittens.
They also sell hats, slippers, gloves and pelts.
Made In The USA.
5 West Main, East Helena, Montana 59635
But.... if you aren't from Helena... you can still buy their products online at
When you walk in their store, you see all the hats, gloves, mittens, and slippers they have for sale. You can see the many different colors and sizes.
I mentioned all the products are made in the USA. But I want to tell you, they are made by the owner of High Plains Sheepskin right here in Helena, Montana .
Here is a picture I snapped of him making mittens. This is a small business with much love going into his work.
My Hubs decided to buy one of their Blizzard Hats. He has been out hunting in the below 0 weather for a few days now. He was really tired of his head freezing.
High Plains Blizzard Hat
Made of the best skins available and a lot of work goes into each one. A soft bill, contoured lines, durable binding and a unique earflap design that adjusts behind the head are only some of the features that set this versatile hat apart. You tie it once, no chin straps. Men's and Women's sizes.
High Plains Sheepskin Mittens
These are the mittens they ship most to international places from Norway to Australia, from Korea to Chile. Timberline mittens are doing the cold weather heavy lifting. Great for wrapping around a ski pole. Mens's and Women's sizes.
Soft sueded garment leather and wool for driving, shoveling snow and everyday use. These come in tan, brown, gray and black. Men's and Women's sizes
High Plains Sheepskin Slippers
Made in Montana from the finest in American wool pelts. The High Plains Sheepskin slippers have been a Rocky Mountain gift tradition for over thirty years. Their improved, foot hugging design is based on the unique characteristics of our top grade sheepskins: dense breathable wool and fine sueded leather. They have a comfort unmatched by synthetics and their stout construction, double stitched in their Montana shop is unrivaled by any import. the supple and durable neoprene sole puts the mailbox or woodpile within slipper range.
Comfortable in the winter or summer, because wool breathes.
Men's and Women's sizes available
What great Christmas gifts these would make for the people in your life that do a lot of outdoor sports. The hat is especially great for those who ski
