Summary: Mittens are gloves with a single part for all the fingers and a separate component for the thumb. Due to their smaller surface area exposed to the cold than gloves, mittens offer warmth for the hands during cold weather. Mittens are warmer than gloves made from the same material because the fingers save heat when they come in contact with each other.
What is Mitten?
Based on the Cambridge University dictionary, the definition of a mitten is a type of glove with a single part for all the fingers and a separate component for the thumb. The thumb and the other four fingers are typically still separated by mittens. Due to their smaller surface area exposed to the cold than gloves, mittens offer better thermal insulation, albeit at the expense of ability. Warmth, comfort, and occupational functions are all connected to mitts. They also have a cultural relationship with domestic cats in the English-speaking world, as seen in the story of the Three Little Kittens.
What is the History of Mitten?
Since wool and other materials used to make clothes biodegrade quickly, there aren't many examples of mittens that humans have worn for a very long time. Numerous representations of mittens from Ancient Egypt still exist today. Some researchers compare gloves discovered at Egyptian pyramids to mittens, and an item by Egyptologist Robert Hay is said to have been a "linen sleeve and mitten in one piece".
The researchers found the earliest recognizable mittens in Latvia around 1000 A.D. As knitting flourished in England in the 16th century, people made mittens from wool at home. One of the earliest known children's mittens survives this period. This artefact is a form of circular knitting, and modern knitters often use round needles. In the early 19th century, people found blue and white homespun wool mittens. An American diary from 1803 refers to the shag knit employed at the wrists as the "New Mode of Knitting". There is a poem written in the mitten with the name "William Watson" on the thumb of the mitten.
What are the Differences Between Mittens and Gloves?
A glove is a garment that covers the hands and has a separate sleeve for the wax fingers. A mitten is a type of glove with only two sections, one for the thumb and the other for the four fingers. Gloves are more dexterous than mitts but may not be ideal alternatives for cold weather. Mittens are warmer than gloves made from the same material because the fingers save heat when they come in contact with each other. Reducing the surface means reducing heat loss.
