Buff or Thrum?

While on holiday I got hold of a copy of Knitting Traditions which had an article on Buff knitting.

Buff mittens were apparently popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Knit with a loops on the inside which are then cut and felted for extra warmth.

I then came across Thrummed mittens which are similar but knit with wool tops.
Seems just what we need for the school run, watch this space...
