Frequently asked questions
Do you take custom orders?
Yes! One of our favorite things to do is to take a loved one's wool sweater or afghan and make mittens from it. Often it is a grandma's or grandpa's sweater that has been hidden in a closet for years; too precious to throw away, but too outdated to wear. What fun it is for us to create something wonderfully beautiful and functional from the treasured item!
We believe in our "Memory Mitts" because, in a sweet and small way, it allows our loved ones to live on in our hearts by keeping our hands toasty warm.

How did LucyBlue get its name?
Sisters and co-founders Wendy and Susie are dog lovers. So when it came to naming the company, the pups naturally popped up. At the time, Sue had an English Mastiff named Lucy and Wendy had a French Mastiff named Blue. The wild dream we shared soon became reality and thus, LucyBlue was born. The rest is warm and cozy history.
We love that many of our clients are dog walkers. They've told us that our mittens keep their hands warmer on their long walks more than any other mitten they have ever tried. Hearing that from our incredible customers always brings the biggest smile to our faces.
