Thermadry Polyprop Possum Fur Fingerless Gloves

These Thermadry Polyprop Possum Fur 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 Possum Fur & Merino Wool Beanie Hat, 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 Possum and Merino 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, namely Polypropylene and Elastane. 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.

  Really comfortable gloves but the sizes are running small. I normally use size Medium, 9 but based on previous comments ordered Large. I'm happy with them, but have to say that they are still quite close fit.

  Warmer and much lighter than other wool gloves, ideal for spring and autumn. An excellent bit of kit.

  Prompt delivery. Quality product which will provide the warmth I was seeking. I needed the X large to fit comfortably on my relatively average size hands.

  These more than met my expectations. The day after they arrived I wore them underneath leather work gloves to do arbour work in the pouring rain and temperatures only slightly above freezing. These glove were instrumental in keep my hands warm enough to work safely. They eventually soaked though with rain (along with most of me) but nevertheless they continued to function, and did not become uncomfortable. These took a good long while to dry out again back home from their utterly wet condition, but that isn't unexpected.

  Good quality product. I'm size 9 usually and the Large fit me fine. They're warm in the cold winter weather and great for keeping your fingers free to manage zips and knives. They also make cooking with camp stoves easy. These tasks are tricky with a full glove which require dexterity. I'm looking forward to using them while hunting. The material isn't as soft as the possum fur beanie, and is a little scratchy at first, but this soon settles down after wearing them a few times.

  It's the first time I've owned fingerless gloves, and I chose to try them out on account of being annoyed with the lack of dexterity with other gloves. I also wanted something made of natural fiber and not just giving touchpad capabilities. I have to say they are doing a good job of keeping hands warm when active in cold winter weather, although once the wind picks up I do find I need to keep hands in pockets a bit more often. So I will need either extra layer or better suited gloves when cycling for instance. They are noticeably well put together, and I feel like they are doing the job they were intended for. I have not tried them yet in damp conditions so no idea how they perform in drizzle or otherwise as yet I'm afraid. Only real downside I noticed is they are a little chunkier than a pair of basic fully fingered gloves that I keep in my rucksack or coat pocket for emergencies. So they don't pack quite as small as I had hoped. Otherwise very happy with this purchase.

  Very pleased with the gloves. They are lovely and warm and are surprisingly thin, given how well they perform. I'm now officially a fan of Possum Fur. I take a size Large glove ordinarily so ordered these in a Large also, the fit is perfect. They are snug but only in as much as they hug your hands, rather than being too small.

  These gloves arrived within a couple of days of placing my order. These were intended as a Christmas present for my wife but it turned so cold I gave them to her a bit early. Glad I did as she has worn them constantly since. Amazing that gloves that are so thin and light can be so incredibly warm. Would definitely recommend.
