What are the Burgon and Ball Love The Glove gloves like?

Burgon and Ball’s Love the Glove are a range of women’s gardening gloves that come in two sizes, S/M and M/L and are available in a selection of stylish fabrics and designs. These are red tweed and have artificial suede palms and fingers, a stretchy, breathable mesh between the fingers and a leather trim on the cuff. They fit well and are snug around the fingers and thumb, so you feel in control and with a good grip for whatever task you’re doing. An adjustable wrist strap helps achieve a snug, secure fit and ensures no soil or plant debris falls in but it is a bit fiddly and does mean taking each glove on and off takes a bit longer. Padded palms provide extra cushioning and protection. These are comfortable gloves and particularly good for holding tools.
