look up any word, like sapiosexual:
 
1.
A type of mitten knitted using fine sized needles from worsted wool.
They are made aproximately 30% larger than needed for the finished size, then boiled in hot water and left to air dry.
The mitten when shrunken is almost waterproof and very warm.
Grandma made me a pair of boiled mittens.
