Gloves guide part 6

Types of materials in gloves, number 3:

Very rugged and coarse, but offering decent strength, deerskin gloves are sturdy and show a more pronounced grain making it popular with outdoorsy folks who hike in cold climates.

Types of materials in gloves, number 4:

Goatskin gloves are sometimes the least expensive gloves as they are firm and far more harsh to the touch. Often people misconstrue this type of glove as being a premium material because they associate the goat with certain materials like a pashmina.

Types of materials in gloves, number 5:

Lamb Nappa leather is chrome-tanned producing an extremely soft and supple leather that is used in top quality leather gloves only. The touch, thinness, and flexibility make it ideal for elegant dress gloves for men and women.

Types of materials in gloves, number 6:

Hairsheep leather is finer and less bulky than most leather. It is very supple and soft to the touch but offers enduring resistance to wear and tear. Sometimes it is also referred to as Cape Skin, which refers to hair sheep from South Africa.  Usually, it is sourced in Ethiopia and Nigeria, whereas the Brazilian hair sheep leather is called Cabretta.

Types of materials in gloves, number 7:

Sheepskin and lambskin are often called shearling. This particular skin is used significantly in casual and country riding gloves. It has impeccable resistance qualities to cold weather and usually has another material such as wool as its lining. Although you do not need a lining for these gloves, the wool is so thick and dense that it is not suited for elegant men’s dress gloves.

Types of materials in gloves, number 8:

Slink lamb is similar to sheepskin and comes with the wool on the inside. It is a bit thinner and softer than sheepskin leather and usually comes from New Zealand. Just like with sheepskin, it is too thick to produce elegant, tight-fitting men’s gloves.
