Since last month, we’ve had our wood-burning stoves chuffing away a few times per week. Unfortunately, our current fireside Glove has somehow developed holes in a couple of the fingertips… rendering them practically useless for putting a hand into a roaring fire. And not something you could repair by sewing with cotton, wire or fishing line. Can you buy Kevlar thread?
All three of the Fireside Gloves above look to be made from thick suede leather. The red pair is great value at less than a fiver per pair, but they’re a bit of a garish colour for keeping beside the fireplace.
Our firm favourite is #2, which for most households would probably be the obvious 1st choice. It’s sold singly, which means that, unless you have a left-hander in the house (like we do here) you’ll only need to buy the right-handed glove. We’ll have to buy a pair, but at a mere £17.80, it’s more than a fair price for keeping fingers, hands and arms out of harm’s way.
