What Does Knit Wrist Cuffs Mean?
A knit wrist cuff is a knitted cuff that forms the wrist portion of the glove or lower edge of the sleeve of a jacket or a sweatshirt. In gloves, it holds the glove firmly in position so it does not slip off. In jackets and sweat shirts, it secures the sleeve edge firmly around the wrist, so the risk of loose fabric being caught within the rotary wheels or gears of a machine while working is reduced.
A knit wrist cuff may also be an piece of independent wrist wear that may or may not cover the palms. It may also be worn for keeping hands warm or just for fashion.
