I bought these gloves in the winter and they were absolutely perfect! They are very cosy and as an added bonus very tactile. I had to do a lot of long distance travelling by train over the winter and they really made a difference - no cold fingers for me when stuck on literally freezing platforms for extended periods of time! Although they are so pleasingly furry they are not too bulky and lived quite happily in my pockets or handbags when not on my hands. I am also a member of Ramblers and they are equally useful for country walks. Of course not everyone likes these high loft furry fleeces, but for those that do these are fantastic. They would make a lovely present.Highly recommended!
