Noble Wilde Fingerless Gloves


Brand: Noble Wilde
Weight: 40 g         55 reviews
These Noble Wilde Fingerless 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 fingerless 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.

  I got an email notification these were back in stock. I'd forgotten I left a notification request months ago. Anyway I bought them and soon realised why they are so hard to come by because these gloves are superb. Snug tight fit and super warm. I immediately bought a pair for her indoors (can you say that kind of thing these days?) and she loves them. So much so that she is buying pairs for her son and his girlfriend for xmas. Guess that's why the demand probably outstrips supply for these beauties.

  So good I was devastated when I lost one, and promptly had to buy another pair. I find that these are warm enough that I don't always need full fingered gloves. Warm when wet, perfect for outdoor pursuits, but also entirely at home for chilly fingers in a cold office. Absolutely recommended, just make sure they don't fall out of your pocket when walking the dog in the woods!

  Amazing Gloves!. The combination of Merino & Possum wool create SUPER warmth. Perfect for outdoors with no need to remove them when working my mobile phone. I have also been wearing them for work where the fingerless style allows for no obstruction when using the PC/Laptop keyboard. I bought 3 pairs of these gloves for family members (2x medium & 1x X Large). I would say that they do come up slightly smaller than expected. I am wearing Medium when I normally wear a Small size.

  Perfect for keeping my hands warm while sitting at my laptop all day in an unheated room! The only downside is the fit. I followed the measurement instructions and ordered a Large pair, XL would be a better fit. Still gets a five star rating for quality and warmth.

  An excellent pair of fingerless gloves. They are soft, comfortable and warm. This is down to the combination of materials used. The sizing guide is accurate. They work well inside mittens.

  These are good. Snug fitting, very warm, very compact so easy to carry in pockets. Long wrists, which makes a big difference to warmth. Not a terribly attractive colour, but probably good camouflage. Can’t comment on durability yet.

  Second pair after three or four years of service from the first that my sister gave me as a present purchased from this site. The gloves have a dense, fine weave and provide a pleasant warm furry feel when worn. They are very useful on their own particularly when requiring the dexterity of your fingers but are also suitable to wear under Gore-Tex gloves or mitts as a liner if you require additional sustained inclement weather protection. They are without doubt the most useful fingerless gloves I have come across, highly recommended.

  This is the second pair I've bought after losing the first pair. Super warm apart from the fingertips, I would buy again without hesitation. Sizing seems a little on the small size but as they have no fingers it's not really an issue, also they have a good amount of stretch, but crucially did not become loose over the two years or so that I owned the first pair. The new pair that I have just received appear to be identical.
