Winter gloves need to be extra warm, as well as comfortable to wear and smart to look at. There are not many gloves available that match all three criteria, and the perfect warm winter gloves womens are hard to find. Sometimes the winter is unbearably cold, and you feel like you can never escape the feeling of constantly being freezing to your bones. All you want is the warmest clothing possible, and extra warm gloves are definitely high up on the priority list for when you leave your home. Here at Draper of Glastonbury we specialise in high quality, real shearling gloves for the winter, which are handcrafted in our own factory in England using traditional techniques for over 80 years. Our company is family owned, and was established in 1937.
Shearling makes the perfect material for making the best winter gloves, because of the warmth that it provides. The woolly insides make them extremely soft and comfortable, and the air circulates between the hairs which is what makes them so warm. Shearling is designed to keep sheep warm in the coldest of climates around the world, and it will certainly keep your hands warm. It has been used for thousands of years, and there is nothing warmer in the coldest temperatures. It is commonly used in Russia, Canada and Norway, where it is very snowy and cold.
The warmest winter gloves need to be warm and they also need to be water resistant, so that they are practical in wet and snowy weather too. Shearling is a brilliant natural material, which is hygroscopic. This means that it can absorb a third of its weight in water without becoming damp, which means that it is naturally waterproof. It also means that they will not get sweaty when you get too hot. You can use suede and leather protector spray to further protect the gloves from water and dirt as well, and they can be cleaned in a normal washing machine at a low temperature below 30, using mild detergent and no bleach. You can also wipe best winter gloves for extreme cold clean with a damp cloth.
Super warm winter gloves need to be flexible and comfortable to wear as well as extremely warm, and this requires the softest type of shearling available. It needs to be sourced from specific areas of the world and specific tanneries, and with over 80 years of experience we know exactly where to find the very best materials. Our best winter gloves for men are handmade from start to finish, and they take over four weeks to make by our expert craftsmen and women in England.
