I was just wondering what everybody thought the warmest kind of gloves are? I'm in need of a pair as winter approaches and was wondering whether to get leather, or maybe even cashmere but I'm not sure which type will keep my hands snug. Any suggestions?
I grew up where it was REALLY cold, and learned that as silly as it sounds, layering (!) two pairs of gloves, usually thin cashmere will keep you warm no matter what (used to work for me in below 0 temperatures). Just something to keep in mind when it gets unbearably cold.
I have two pairs of leather gloves, one pair lined with wool and the other satin, and one pair of wool gloves. The leather lined with satin ones aren't warm at all, and I see that pretty often in designer glove, but the leather lined with wool ones are significantly warmer than the plain wool gloves. Like others have said, if you can get a pair lined with cashmere that's even better.
