Winter essentials

I thought we had a post about this but my pathetic searching skills didn't unearth anthyhing.

Keeping warm...how do you? I can't do without my Hotties handwarmers when teaching but I'd love to find a pair of very warm but thinish gloves....any recommendations for gloves (not breaking the bank) or other winter warmers??

I don't do gloves - if it's really cold I'll wear some cycling fingerless gloves - but I hate the feel of them and would rather have cold fingers!

I find lots of layers of fleece works best. Just got some CMA fleeces done, they are a brand called Uneek and they are really warm, I wore mine all day yesterday over another, thinner fleece and wasn't cold at all.....

I always wear lined leather gloves Trudi ... not 'horsey' ones just whatever I can get ... they seem to be the best way of staying warm and you can still 'feel' things ... if its really a pair of silk liners really helps too ...

I always found it was my feet that suffered more than my hands .. don't seem to get cold feet these days in my leather 'country boots' but we haven't had that much really cold weather and when it is I don't tend to stand around out there ...

Thanks girls, will check those fleeces out Helen. I hate gloves too but I just have see through fingers in the cold and when they start to warm up it bloddy hurts so I try not to let them get that bad. Will look around for some silk liners, I've seen them in sports shops I think Jennie. Funny that my feet don't seem to suffer :confused: doesn't make any sense :lol:

I get cold feet too, Jennie, rather than hands. Ski socks are the answer there!

Treated myself to some Rydale or is it Rydell (?) lined leather boots, were on sale last time I was in UK, very cosy! Hands - I wear fingerless gloves when I remember.

:shock: two of you with fingerless gloves :lol: I just don't understand why my feet don't suffer like my hands- my fingers look like old lady fingers when they're cold- that see through look :thumbdown: even happens in the supermarket freezer section!
