Gold Leaf Gloves are another find from the UK, it seemed like everyone was talking about them last time I was there. I bought the Dry Touch gloves for myself and my crew to trial, and they were a hit.
They are meant to fit snugly in order to provide a high level of dexterity, and the leather is extremely soft and pliable. Water resistant and fully lined for winter warmth. Excellent for pruning, planting and potting jobs.
Sizes: Standard or Large (in England, Ladies & Gents)
Dry Touch - thin lining & water resistant
Winter Touch - fully lined with thinsulate & ski-dri waterproofing
Tough Touch - excellent protection from thorns & sharp, scratchy stuff
The occasional hand washing in a bowl of warm water, with a few drops of mild dish soap, will do the trick. Give them a good rinse & hang to dry. Less is more when it comes to washing your Gold Leaf gloves in order to maintain the natural oils in the leather.
