Upper-linen. The hand – skin
Dense packing of parts with a thickness of 2-2. 5 cm
Linen threads. Hand stitch
A very convenient option for protecting the brush both in the early and late Middle Ages.
It can be used as an independent protection of the hand, and as a basis for a chain mail or gauntlet mitten.
The dense stitching provides good protection for the brush, and the horizontal stitching of the parts allows you to bend the mitten and hold the weapon without additional effort.
The thumb is reinforced with an additional thickness of padding.
The shape of these mittens and their wide distribution is confirmed by a large number of visual sources.
