Try soaking them in warm water with hair conditioner in it. This softens up any scratchy yarns! The look fantastic!!!

Christine, I have tried everything to soften wool. They feel soft at first, but they end up itchy. My neck and shoulder area are the most sensitive, but I can wear wool socks or gloves. I am in the process of trying various wools and blends to see if I can find something that will work for a sweater.

Thank you to everyone! I would also like to comment here about the thumbs... these work fine as is, but my DD had another pair of similar gloves that had a button hole type thing in the thumb so her thumb would be useful as well as the fingers. They had come apart so I fixed them for her (yeah!) and added the thumb buttonhole to those again. They are neat, but I think my thumb would get cold through the hole so I'm going to make some more soon and attempt some sort of thing like the fingers for the thumb. We'll see if I have any hair left when I'm done.

To those who might be trying the pattern.. it has a unique way of doing the fingers so there is no adding stitches for each finger and there are less holes. I did have to cover a few as you always do, but overall it was better.

Your's look good! I just finished a similar pair using three patterns: Knucks, Pele, and Broad Street Mittens. I like the finger hood on your pair much better. It's smaller than mine. I'll try the Urban Necessity Glove pattern next time. My pair also have a thumb "hat" -- more like a peekaboo hole.
