West County Garden Gloves
Good, washable gardening gloves are hard to find. West County Garden Gloves has raised the bar, with a most attractive, comfortable, durable, protective, AND washable collection of garden and all-around useful gloves. This winter, my plum-colored padded Work Gloves made their way from holiday parties to garden cleanup to driving and snowshoveling, with frequent machine washing and air drying between uses. The Rose Glove ... well, I pruned in bliss with its lightweight gauntlet protection. While I favor a lighter, cheaper glove for summer planting and weeding, these do the job, too. I just like to save West County for when I need a bit more finger and palm protection, a better grip ... and when I want to feel dressed up in and beyond the garden.
