Launched at the Chelsea Flower Show a couple of summers ago, Ethel Gloves are a professional gardening glove combining fashion and function. Available in a range of patterns, the gloves are made of breathable stretch fabric to keep hands cool, dry and comfortable. Palm and fingertips are reinforced with synthetic suede which is more durable than suede as well as washable and there's also a rubberised grip feature on the inside of the fingers. The patterned upper is made of two way stetch spandex for a snug, secure fit which also provides dexterity and the extended cuff protects the wrist. Fully machine washable.
The gloves are available in Large, Medium and Small in most patterns and these sizes are equivalent to ladies gloves sizes 8, 7 and 6.
We love these gloves - I bought my first pair at Chelsea back in 2010 and they are still going strong. They've got all the right features in all the right places!
Patterns available include:
Jubilee - the best selling Ethel glove, with a cream fleur de lys design on a dusty blue background and a tan palm.
Rendezvous - lemon yellow fleur de lys design on a pale ochre background and a brown palm
