No, this is not one of the (hopefully) five-digit appendages dangling at the end of your arms. (Or, in the case of dare-devil Uncle Roddy, the four-digit appendage.) We’re using this word in a much more elegant sense in that we are describing how a fabric / textile / leather feels to the touch. A silk or leather might have a smooth, buttery hand, while a heavy canvas or loosely woven wool might have a rough hand. Capite?
