Glove, a covering for the hand and wrist, which forms a considerable article of commerce.

Gloves are divided into various kinds, such as silk, thread, cotton, leather, etc. The materials for the last-mentioned sort are the skins of kids, lambs, does, bucks, and other animals, the manufacturing of •which affords employment to a great number of families.

Although the most fashionable gloves, and those very generally worn, consist of leather, yet they are by no means the most healthy. Indeed, it is equally improper and unwholesome to cover the hands and arms with any other than woollen texture, which ought to be preferred by all females who are anxious to improve the complexion of those extremities : - we are convinced, from experience, that no cosmetics are so efficacious and safe as simple animal wool.
