Mittens on babies remind me of boxing gloves. Most babies are not big fans of mittens... they cover up one of their main ways of exploring the world. So if you are going to cover your child's hands with something, why not do it with $130.00 worth of cashmere? That way when they are flailing their hands around trying to get the mittens to come off in their stroller, someone may notice and think, "Wow, are those chashmere mittens?"
