Hi All,

A while ago someone posted about the gloves beginning with a N that are made of the same stuff as wet suits..... I really don't know what they are called but well a good fiend gave me a pair and you know I honestly can recommend them!

They are warm, they help with grip and you know what, and I know most of you wont find this needed but..... they stop the baler tine on a bale of hay from digging into you hands while you carry them :D Believe me bale carrying and I are having problems now a days :wink: I want to find self walking ones....

Anyway back to the gloves, I have tested them out big time and the best thing my knuckles are not as swollen today as they usually are cus they actually offer quite a bit of support and are easy to work in ........ So if your thinking of getting some they re really good :D I'm sorry I can't remember the name of em, or who posted the post or even how long ago it was :oops: I do just about know how I am these days :lol::lol::lol: You all take care Cris x

    Hi Cris,
    those gloves sound great! I will be watching this post to see if anyone knows what they're called.
    Meantime, glad they help you with the baling,,,,sounds pretty painful, with or without good gloves! ':roll:' Irisxx :roll:

    Hi Cris, Iris and Lynn

    Was it Neoprene?

    Had a quick search on here, which I can never quite get the hang of, but these gloves were mentioned in one thread, some time ago, but I got the impression the poster was asking about them ie if they were any good.

    Hope you are ok on this very wet, Monday morning. Well, it is here. :roll: :)

    Love
    Elna xx

    Are they flexible Cris? I do need some fingerless gloves for warmth but need to hang onto my crutches.

    Take care

    Hi Iris,

    Bales have always been horrible :lol::lol: The pa is going after my hands wrists and elbows with vengeance and these gloves have so a few multi purposes :wink: And this morning I discovered they are waterproof and wind proof :D Much better than the old woolen ones..... Just got to work out how to wash them :lol: Hope you wrist and knee is ok? Cris ((( ))) x

    Hi Lynn,

    Sounds lie them but I get confused ( there's a shock for you :wink: ) over whats a brand name and whats the material...... They are wet suit material no doubt about that but like you said black with a red inside and really help :D ((( ))) xx

    Hi Elna,

    That's the stuff they are made of, thank you for knowing..... you'd thin as I was wearing them at the time (might still be :wink: ) I 'd have some idea but I just couldn't remember the word :oops: :lol: Hop your ok and your knee is coming along ok? ((())) xx

    Hi Del,

    Your brilliant and thanks for finding it :D x

    Hi Elizabeth,

    They have taken a bit of breaking in but yep they are flexible but still offer a bit of support if that makes sense? If you have ever worn a wet suit they are as flexible as them. I got problems with my wrists to say the least and they come just over the back of the swelling and even help that :D Sadly just gone over and landed on my knees again (if I don't do that at least 2x a week now I think something is wrong with me now a days :roll: ) and s ever stuck my hands out and it didn't hurt s much as normal I guess cu they are warm..... wonder if I can get some for knees :wink: ((( ))) x

    Hi Legs,

    The little things we find that turn turn into huge bonuses eh? I been thinking about getting some but its not been a good year and when she gave them me I was like a kid at Christmas..... as long as they had toys..... You ok up there? ((( ))) xx

    Hi Toni,

    They might well be and for making snowballs :wink: However....... I'd sooner not test out that theory...... I don't cope so well with snow and ice :roll: You might all have noticed :oops:

    Hey they are really good and well when I saw the knuckles wee less swollen as well I did think...... these are good :D ((( ))) xx

    I have these and they're great - yep black on the outside and red inside - Got them from a site called funky arther.

    I've found they really help when my hands "hurt" as well - pop them on for a couple of hours and its much better. I type in them, walk the dog in them, everything!

    Hi Lynn,

    Think when I done for the day I might just wash them while wearing them..... two things at once eh? :lol::lol::lol:

    I thought I had a pair of the back along but they weren't in the same league and you are so right anything that helps now a days is so good :D ((( ))) xx

    Hi Cris

    It's called neoprene....and it is used for making wet suits, boots and gloves for diving, kayaking and canoeing. Nice and cosy!!!
