Noble Wilde Gloves


Brand: Noble Wilde
Weight: 50 g         55 reviews
These Noble Wilde Gloves have been created from a special blend of fine merino wool and insulating possum fur, making them a luxurious winter glove that will provide a superb amount of warmth while remaining extremely light in weight. The idea of blending these two natural fibres was first developed by a New Zealand knitter as a by-product of the possum control programme, making the merino/possum blend an environmentally sound choice.

For many years now, Woodlore have stocked the Noble Wilde Beanie, a best-selling item which has proved extremely popular among our fellow outdoorsmen and women year after year. As such, it seemed like an obvious choice to also stock their gloves. If you're a fan of their hats, these gloves will no doubt be a welcome addition to your winter wardrobe.

Possum fur is one of the most extraordinary natural fibres in the world, thanks to its hollow core; this cavity traps a tunnel of air that provides extraordinary warmth (up to 30% more than standard woollen garments), while keeping the fibre's weight to a minimum. As a sign of just how effective this is, the only other animal with a hollow core fibre is the polar bear.

Merino wool also has unique characteristics; each fibre is exceptionally fine, long and densely crimped, helping to retain heat close to the skin while keeping out cold air. The fibre also wicks moisture away from the skin, allowing the wool to stay warm and dry. The combination of merino wool with possum fur results in a fabric that is lightweight, twice as warm as wool, highly resistant to pilling and opulently soft to the touch.

Two synthetic fibres have been added to the mix. These fibres help to provide a hard-wearing outer surface to the gloves, while retaining just the right amount of stretch to give a firm fit to the hand. Please note these gloves are a snug fit; as such we would recommend choosing the next size up if you are unsure of the correct sizing.

  These gloves are just great. Warmer than pure wool, softer than the fingerless gloves and darker in colour. Purchased as family gifts too. Good product to use in cooler regions and with Nordic poles.

  Great quality gloves that keep your hands & fingers toasty. Superb fit as well & very comfortable (fit like a glove, sorry). Fast delivery & would definitely recommend.

  The product itself is high quality. Yet, definitely, the problem is size. If you have bigger hands but not so much, purchase XL undoubtedly. If you really have big hands, there is no size for you of this product. As an example, I have 20 cm-long hands and the L size I purchased is short for me, even though the chart says it should be okay. Previous comments are in the same vein.

  As per my review for the fingerless gloves, a five star rating for quality & warmth, but again as per the fingerless version, I would suggest if you use the measurement instructions and think you're a Large, go for XL.

  Buy large for your size. I am L in fingerless mitt, but XL in these. Excellent warm, practical glove.

  Great product, very warm and comfortable. I usually take a medium size, the pair I bought were a wee bit on the small side. They still fitted but when I lost them I bought a pair in large which fit perfectly. So maybe aim for a size up. Decent price.

  Although I was impressed by the speed which which my order arrived, especially just before Christmas, but I was disappointed by the size. My husband does have large hands, but not extremely so. Unfortunately these gloves are very tight, despite being described as X Large. Such a shame when possum fur is so lovely.

  I have very poor circulation in my hands and was hoping that these gloves would keep my fingers warm in winter. Sadly they didn't but I'm sure they would do a good job for most people or for myself in milder weather. They are a good fit and look like they will last well.

  I bought these having been very happy with the finger less variant. I was a bit disappointed. I purchased the xl size and they were far too small for my hands despite being an XL when using the finger less variant. They were described as being snug but I think the XL should be labelled as a large. I re-gifted them to someone with smaller hands than me and they were happy with them.

  Really warm considering how thin these are and lightweight which allows the user to be reasonably dextrous. Started to feel the cold wearing these around -8c in 75-80% humidity. Overall, great value for the money.
