TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

How is usage temperature measured?

All our gloves are laboratory-tested using a thermal hand to determine their level of insulation and minimum temperature rating. The minimum temperatures for use (recommended and limit) are the result of a study carried out with a test panel of 23 walkers exposed to temperatures ranging from 5°C to -20°C and 10 km/h winds. These temperatures are only valid in walking conditions.

How to keep your hands warm with the right clothing

When active, the body generates heat which is preserved thanks to the thermal insulation of your clothing. If the clothing is inadequate, your body cools and the blood flow to the hands and feet drops in order to keep your upper body warm. Your clothing can therefore play a role in keeping your hands warm.

How to maintain your merino wool liner gloves

We recommend that you machine wash your Merino wool liner gloves at 30°C on a normal cycle, preferably with liquid detergent.



Dry them on a flat surface, away from moisture and all sources of heat. This could damage the fibre and make them lose their shape. Never put them in the tumble dryer.

How to properly protect your hands from the cold

By applying the layering principle, you can optimise the insulation of your hands. Consequently, by wearing liner gloves in addition to gloves, several air gaps are created around your hands, which provide effective insulation from the cold. To achieve this, the gloves must be big enough not to compress your fingers. This is because the compression slows down the blood flow in the fingers, which prevents them from keeping warm.

Origin of the wool

We use wool from merino sheep bred on farms in South Africa that do not practise mulesing.

We built a partnership with a group of breeders (Konsortium Merino) to guarantee respect for animal welfare and the environment.

This means we have full traceability, which allows us to guarantee the origin of the wool.

Warmth

When worn under hiking gloves, these liner gloves will give you 3°C of additional warmth.

This corresponds to the ambient temperature at which 100% of testers felt comfortable.

For better protection, we recommend that you wear gloves over the liner glove.

Warning!

These gloves do not protect against the spread of viruses or microbes.

What does the dexterity of a glove refer to?

A glove's dexterity corresponds to its ability to handle objects with ease. Our liner gloves have been given a score from 1 to 5 in a laboratory study. The closer the score is to 5, the more the glove can handle objects in the same way as bare hands.

In particular, tests were done to measure how easily it is to get a jacket on and open it with these liner gloves.
