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
