How to choose gloves


Leather gloves are usually made from calf, sheep and pigskin. Such material will well protect your hands from moisture and wind, and a properly selected lining will warm them. Expensive products are made from husky - thin leather with special tanning. They sit much better on the arm, but this material is quite capricious: if your gloves get wet, they will be difficult to dry so that their shape remains the same.
Special attention when buying gloves should be paid to the quality of the skin. Details should be similar in both smoothness and density. In a quality product, not only the upper layer is colored, but also the lower one, otherwise the gloves can shed.
If you want to choose gloves made of suede, you should know that high-quality suede has a velvety and practically invisible pile, and low-quality models are more “terry”. The material should not have any bald patches and unpainted spots.
Gloves must be exactly on hand. You should not get too narrow a product, the skin can sit down.And wide gloves, even if they sit down a little, will still not have the correct shape.
Lining is most often divided into knitted, biker and wool. The best option is considered a natural lining with a minimal addition of synthetics - in this case, the gloves will breathe and absorb moisture, but they will not lose their shape. If you choose a fur lining, you need to take a good look at how the fur is dyed and whether it is trimmed evenly - lumps of fur can cause a lot of inconvenience.
Knitted gloves do not look as elegant as leather and less practical. However, they warm their hands well in hard frosts and at the same time are much cheaper, and if you prefer to wear knitted scarves and hats, you can get a good set. Before you buy a knitted product, you need to look at its composition: the more wool it has, the better knitted gloves will warm your hands, but they will stretch more than gloves made of synthetic fabric.
