Showa Floreo 370 Lightweight Gardening Gloves Colo&hellip by Showa
I discovered these a few months ago and they are wonderful!

They are lightweight and close fitting so, unlike most gardening gloves, they don't compromise your sense of touch too much, so are perfect for fiddly jobs and for handling delicate plants, while still giving you the protection of gloves. If you are the kind of gardener who prefers not to wear gloves but likes the protection they offer then these are the perfect solution.

They are waterproof on the fingers and palms so great for most jobs, though you would need something tougher for a job like pruning thorny plants.

I would love it if Brooks would bring out a similar design for colder weather with a more substantial fabric covering the toes!
