The Official Home of the Bernie Mittens

We are excited to announce our partnership with Jen Ellis to produce Vermont Mittens, the mittens famously worn by Vermont's Senator, Bernie Sanders at the 2021 inauguration. A portion of the proceeds to benefit Outright Vermont.


About Bernie Mittens

Meet Jen Ellis & Her Vermont Mittens

Jen Ellis
Jen is our neighbor and a second-grade teacher in Essex Junction, VT. She and a partner began making Vermont Mittens years ago to sell locally. Each one is unique as they are made from retired wool sweaters, they are finished with a warm fleece lining made from recycled plastic (similar to the stuffing in our Bears!).
