Child's Mitten - Museum of London 1500-1600

This is a Tudor child’s mitten; it was hand-knitted from wool. The mitten was found in the Finsbury area of London. In Tudor times, Finsbury was covered by fields. Perhaps a child lost their mitten here when they were playing in the snow in the winter?

50-220 CE.  Before the technique of knitting with two needles evolved, textiles with a very similar structure and texture were created by a technique known as ‘single-needle knitting’. This sock, made in this method, was intended to be worn with sandals, as the big toe is shaped separately from the other toes. It was excavated from Christian burial grounds of the late Roman period, found in the present-day city of al-Bahnasa in Egypt.
