Gloves appear to be of great antiquity. According to some translations of Homer's The Odyssey, Laërtes is described as wearing gloves while walking in his garden so as to avoid the brambles.
And about Gloves? Sue's Mom and Dad sold gloves... all kinds of gloves. When Sue was growing up, she use to do the books for the family! When Sue's Dad passed on, Rita took control of the business and was very successful driving from San Francisco to San Diego! We still have boxes and boxes of sample gloves in the garage! Need some??
A glove ( Middle English from Old English glof) is a type of garment (and more specifically a fashion accessory ) which covers the hand of a human . Gloves have separate sheaths or openings for each finger and the thumb ; if there is an opening but no covering sheath for each finger they are called " fingerless gloves ". Fingerless gloves with one large opening rather than individual openings for each finger are sometimes called gauntlets . Gloves which cover the entire hand but do not have separate finger openings or sheaths are called mittens. Mittens are warmer than gloves made of the same material because the extra air inside creates added insulation, and because fingers maintain their warmth better when they are touching.
