Gardening gloves are something that I did not like to wear when gardening except for some of the time when pruning roses. I like to feel the soil, the seeds, and the plants. It just seemed that gloves were more in my way than helping.
When working for a landscaping company I found that gloves were a necessity. I never knew what I might find in the soil – broken glass, dog poop, moose droppings (this was Alaska). I would start the day with a large box of latex gloves but each pair may not last through one job and my hands couldn’t “breathe”. It seemed like such a waste throwing away so many gloves everyday.
One day my boss gave me a pair of gloves to try out. They were fantastic and I have them to this day. Fox Gloves are machine washable, come in a variety of colors, and make a great gift for a gardener (or for yourself). For me, wearing Fox Gloves is almost like I am not wearing gloves. I have only tried the original style. I have most recently used them to when installing Christmas lights at the LDS Church grounds in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Update: I now sell Fox Gloves so if you are having trouble finding them just check out my online store.
