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. FoxGloves are machine washable, come in a variety of colors, and make a great gift for a gardener (or for yourself). For me, wearing FoxGloves is almost like I am not wearing gloves. I have only tried the original style. I also used FoxGloves when installing Christmas lights at the grounds of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah and they worked very well for that purpose. I would think that birdwatchers and photographers would also love these gloves.
When I opened my store Basil & Rose in Bountiful, Utah I began selling all styles of FoxGloves including their work gloves which do not get stiff when wet like many work gloves.
All of their gloves are machine washable on delicate.
