So you mean yardage/woven wool or sweaters?
My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

I've seen directions for using shrunken wool sweaters. You basically cut the cuffs of the mittens along the bottom ribbed edge. Trace your hands a bit generously and add 1/4". Then you just serge up and around the thumb and hands. Some were left with the serging outside and some were turned to the inside. HEre's one or you could check out these.
