Glove Materials

You may sometimes hear knit gloves referred to as a “13-gauge” or “18-gauge” glove. The term gauge simply refers to the size and type of needles used in a seamless knitting machine to produce a glove. The lower the gauge of a glove, the bulkier and less dexterous it is. The higher the gauge a glove is, the thinner and more dexterous and comfortable the glove can be.
