What’s a Thrum? A thrum is a length of unspun roving that is knit into a stitch at the middle, so that the loose roving ends line the interior of the garment. Thrums have been used for a very long time to create ultra-warm, ultra-soft garments to make even cold winter nights comfortable. An excellent, well-explained article about thrumming can be found at The Yarn Harlot’s blog.
Each Thrum Socks/Mittens Kit will make your choice of either a pair of Thrum Socks or a pair of Thrum Mittens
