I have small hands and normally would buy small size Marigolds etc, but these bee keeping gloves in small were far too big. They were about 10 to 15 mm too long on each finger, making it very difficult to pick anything up.
Thankfully I am OK on a sewing machine and have altered them to fit me properly.
I haven't tried them yet at bee keeping but they feel like they will protect me from stings.
Suffering from macho glove envy and wearing disposable gloves and getting stung every time I opened my hive, my confidence was in a bit of a crisis. I have now used these gloves several times and not suffered one sting. I have been told that my whole body language is more confident and I am definitely more confident. I now got to the hive with a plan of action and complete that plan rather than skipping through, praying that I wont get stung too many times. I have noticed that the bees have calmed down, obviously they sense my nervousness. I highly recommend these gloves, money well spent.
I am pleased with the ordering process and delivery so am planning to return for more equipment.
I’m delighted with the sensitive skin gloves and the hive tool. Thank you
