We’re heading into the middle of summer here so it feels a little strange to be writing about gloves, but when Literary Book Gifts contacted me about trying a pair of their writing gloves I couldn’t resist. I received a complimentary pair of writing gloves in exchange for an honest review.
Even in the warmest weather, I always have really cold hands and fingers (and the air-con they insist on blasting in my local ‘writing’ coffee shop doesn’t help either) but wearing actual gloves doesn’t exactly make it easy to hold a pen or use a keyboard. These writing gloves are really useful: they cover a good bit of your fingers but because they’re thin and fingerless you can still get on with whatever writing method you like.
The gloves are soft and very comfortable to wear (containing about 35% cashmere wool) and they come in 13 different colours, so there should be a pair for most tastes.
Heather Navy Blue
Light Heather Grey
Heather Coffee Brown
I chose Heather Purple (which you can see in the photographs). It’s a really nice shade of purple: dark enough not to look cheap, but with a bit of texture through it.
I really like these writing gloves and, to be honest, I’m surprised I haven’t thought of buying myself something like them before. If you’re interested in getting yourself (or a writer friend) a pair, you can check out Literature Book Gifts’ website here. There are also literature themed t-shirts and tote bags available.
