These crocheted mittens are “leafs”, an Iranian homemade version of a body polisher or “scrunchie” exfoliator. Worn on your hand in the bath or shower and lathered with shower gel, they are an ideal non-abrasive way to get your blood flowing in the morning!
These are made out of cotton whereas the ones you buy commercially are usually made out of synthetic material. A lovely lady in the town where we live makes them to order for us when we are there and as long as we give her some notice I end up bringing a bag full home with me. They don’t lose their shape, and are fabby to take on your travels as they roll up small.
I love them and they make original girly- presents.
