It would be hard to find a better knitted wool glove than these. Made from Icelandic wool they are thick but stretchy and have short cuff so do not interfere with wrist seals.
Being so stretchy two sizes cover all hand sizes If you normally go for a XXS-S glove go for Small, if you are medium hand size or above choose Medium/Large.
The wool of Icelandic sheep contains two different types of hair that serve as a natural barrier from wet and cold weather. The outer layer is composed of coarse, long hair known in Icelandic as tog. The tough and fleecy tog is a water-resistant layer. Underneath the tog, there is a layer of short hair, known in Icelandic as þel. The softer þel layer keeps the sheep snug and warm even in the worst of weather conditions. If any moisture escapes through the water-resistant tog layer, the þel is able to keep the animal warm even when wet.
The Icelandic wool called lopi combines both the water-resistant tog fibres and the warm, snug þel fibres all in one yarn. The strong outer fibres hold the softer, warmer fibres together, and the result is an ideal fibre to make the warmest gloves that will wick moister and keep your hands snug even when damp.
