How much colder he felt with nothing but fabric and skin to comfort him, wind knifing his joints and webbing his face.

I don't understand ' webbing his face'

Is it correct?

Would you please help me?

Thanks so much!

anonymousmaybe she was thinking of "whipping"

I agree. "webbing" makes no sense. But the similarity between the two words makes me wonder if this was transcribed from a spoken source and somebody had wax in their ears.

Nobody could. There is no definition of "web" that would allow it there, and it creates no image in the mind. Some writer just try things, and sometimes they don't work. Or maybe she was thinking of "whipping".
