In case they don't have a covering sheath for each finger then they are called fingerless gloves.

The gloves without separate finger openings are also known as mittens and are warmer than the original gloves. Gloves mostly serve to protect and comfort our hands against cold or heat, physical damage due to friction, abrasion or chemicals, and disease etc. Often the healthcare professionals wear latex, nitrile rubber or vinyl disposable gloves as hygiene and contamination protection measures.
