To be honest, the first time I saw someone wearing gloves with the fingers cut off I really thought they must be crazy.
Then, I moved into a new art/sewing studio and was so very cold.
One day, I thought “what the heck?” and made my very first pair of fingerless gloves from an old sweater. I had a neat new tool, my four thread serger, so I made them with a little pizzazz pink thread. Once I wore them, I became much more productive. I could sew and sew and sew and not get cold and distracted. Plus, I could actually lower my thermostat and save money on bills. I found that once I thoroughly covered my wrists with my fingerless gloves (unlike how most gloves stop above the wrist), my overall body temperature stayed up.
Fingerless gloves certainly work better for typing and texting than those with fingers!
People have worn their Xmittens while: texting, typing (you know you get cold when you are on the computer too long!), biking, hiking, golfing, hula-hooping, driving, constructing, painting, crafting and more.
“What about the fingers? Don’t they get cold?”
The answer is that for most of us our fingers don’t get cold wearing Xmittens.
Because of the range of motion that Xmittens fingerless gloves allow, you don’t have to sacrifice functionality for warmth. Since Xmittens cover your wrists with cozy fleece and are made without separating the fingers, your body retains more warmth. For me, Pennsylvania winters make me layer my Xmittens over other gloves in February, but the rest of the time, Xmittens are fine without anything else. A repeat customer, Heather P. swears by her Xmittens. She even shovels in them! For others, Xmittens may be worn indoors and kept next to the computer (which makes many of us have poor circulation and need more warmth).
