    Default Winter Glove recommendations?

    I had a very melancholy, anxious kind of weekend and part of that, I know, is because I haven't been on the plot much lately.

    One of my problems is that my hands seem to get much colder much quicker than they used to (that makes me sound way too old) and they get very painful. I always garden with gloves, but the usual elasticated, rubbery grippy ones just don't cut it in the winter.

    What are your favourites for winter wear, please? Ta.

    I am old and rather decrepit so bought a pair of (black) parachute silk gloves from an outdoor pursuits /climbing shop. They are very tough but also very thin so easily fit under my usual green gloves which look rather like these https://tinyurl.com/ydc4o2ax.

    They delay getting numb fingers..Cost me about 10 7 years ago - last well.

    I don't wear gloves much in the summer but during winter/ doing the winter clear up and when I need to prune shrubs etc I always wear sturdy gloves.
    I always go for the same ones, they eventually wear through the fingers so I have a few on the go at the same time. I pay about 12. Town and country

    You could try a pair of cotton ones underneath so one have the warmth of one and the protection of the other?

    for illustration purposes others are available https://www.vsafety.co.uk/polyco-ser...on-gloves.html under https://www.vsafety.co.uk/polyco-mat...t-level-1.html

    Cheap thin fleece gloves under the usual rubbery ones work well for me.

    I use Showa 451 Thermo Griphttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Showa-Therm...sulated+gloves

    If you look on Amazon there are various handwarmers available. 50 years ago I had one that ran on charcoal sticks, which was very good when fishing.
