Glove colour chart

We need to use thinner leather for our gloves so you'll notice that this range of colours is different from our clothing leather range - not all the clothing leathers make good gloves, so please choose from this range.

Our luxurious British glove leathers from Pittards are delicate to the touch, and yet are washable by hand or machine, treat as wool. Incredibly soft and thin, this drum dyed, aniline hairsheep leather has an average thickness 0.5mm and yeild of around 5sq ft per skin so because of their small size, larger garments may have more seams than expected.

 

 

 

 

Washing instructions:

Hand Wash -  For best results -

  • Produce a good lather in lukewarm water using mild detergent or soapflakes.
  • Immerse your item and wash gently on your hands.
  • Remove item and rinse thoroughly in clean water.
  • Squeeze out all excess water from the fingers downwards and pull gently into shape.
  • Hang to dry away from direct sunlight or heat.
  • White items should not be washed with coloured articles. Coloured items may be washed with articles of a similar colour provided the above instructions are followed.
  • For best results wash items before they become too soiled!

Machine wash:

  • Wash your item on the low temperature (up to 30°C) gentle cycle of a domestic washing machine (only where recommended).
  • Use a mild soap or soap flakes that are recommended for washing woollens.
    • Cotton or synthetic washing materials and those containing bleach or Sodium Perborate are not suitable.
    • Do not use any fabric conditioner.
    • Do not use strong washing materials as they may damage the leather's performance properties.
  • Ensure that your items are thoroughly rinsed.
  • Spin gently, pull into shape and hang to dry in natural room temperature away from direct sunlight.

DO NOT TUMBLE DRY OR PLACE ON A RADIATOR

  • When nearly dry, put the item on hand to restore shape and softness.
  • Remove from your body and hang up to dry fully.
  • When dry place on your body and buff the surface with a soft cloth.

Colour Fastness

The colour fastness of leather is highly dependent on shade and finish

The aniline glove leather we use, by virtue of its delicate nature, can be made using only a limited range of dyestuffs meaning certain intense fashion colours may achieve no better than grade 2 on a grey scale assessment.This is perfectly adequate for everyday wear on it's own but requires caution if the leather is to be used in conjunction with other materials.

GLOVES

To find your regular glove size, take the measurement around your palm, glove sizing is still done in inches, so you'll need to convert if necessary - 2.54cm = 1 inch.

Our gloves are on the tight side, so you may want to round up or down according to how you like them to fit, a good regular fit by sizing up, a super tight fit by sizing down.
