The numbers refer to the circumference of your hand (in inches) measured around your knuckles. The sizes for these gloves run a little small when compared to other manufacturers who generally consider 8 and below as "small".
There is much to like about thermasilk liners:
1. They wick sweat and moisture from the hands to outer layers keeping hands dry.
2. They provide an extra layer of warmth beneath your regular gloves.
3. They are a decent pair of gloves to wear alone if the temperature is above 45 - 50 degrees.
4. They work great for skiing, sledding, skating, and other outdoor activities where extra warmth is needed without bulk.
A few downsides:
1. Added cost (but offset in my opinion due to the increase in warmth.
2. Silk products in general tend to snag fairly easily, so they do not last a long time - at least this has been my experience.
3. Somewhat "slippery" due to silk surface. Definitely not "driving gloves".
There are similar glove liners made out of polypropylene, which are perhaps just as good as silk, (and perhaps longer-lasting) but there is something elegant about silk! Alternate product to consider: Polypro Glove Liners - Black
Apart from providing additional insulation, the liners can be briefly used alone when additional dexterity is required and when bear skin, even for a short time, would be uncomfortable. So, when I am unlocking my bicycle, I wear just the Thermasilk liners. However, these liners get very dirty, very quickly. So, avoid white if you can. Another annoyance is that they snag on common materials such as Velcro and begin to pill (i.e. form fuzz balls) very quickly. Taking the pros and cons of these liners, my verdict is they, in combination with by Trek cycling gloves, are the best solution I have found for cold weather cycling.
Provide additional insulation
Don't inhibit dexterity when being used with gloves
Allow excellent, temporary dexterity when being used alone
Gets dirty fast
Snag on common materials like Velcro
One extra garment to carry
Another reviewer's advice to avoid white is well founded. I work out of doors through January. The black gloves don't show the considerable dirt that I accumulate.
The only minor drawback is durability. And I can't really blame the gloves. I lost another pair of gloves and was wearing these for a few weeks while working outside. There's now a large hole in one fingertip.
Obviously, they're excellent as liners and can be worn alone for non-manual labor.
I'm very pleased with them.

Worthless in New England weather, not warm, not windproof. They don't do anything, too thin. Will not buy again.Published 4 days ago by Amazon Customer
Cave at Emptor (buyer beware). Nice fit, nice liners, but the "Therma" label is bogus. These are not "Thermal" glove liners!Published 5 days ago by swift_one
