I can't seem to find the answer anywhere online!  Huh Huh Huh If it helps, I am using alpaca roving and do have a scale that measures things in grams, and my hands are average sized but I will be making the cuffs a little longer than normal.  Thanks!

hmmm.....I use 4-5 ounces of wool  to make a pair of slippers. I have never wet felted mittens but if I HAD to guess I would guess 3 ounces of wool....but I really don't know if you would end up using more or less in alpaca.

Here is a pair I made before and after. I did two thick layers of roving to make these and used around 50-75 grams (1.75-2 ounces of roving total, so about 1 ounce/mitten) I used 1 layer of silk(20%)/merino(80%) roving (the grey) and 1 layer of pure merino (the purple/blue)

Hope that helps! If you have any more questions let me know
