While I prefer not to use gloves when doing regular inspection of my bees (bare hands give me much more dexterity) I do welcome using these beautiful gloves during honey harvest time. They allow me to work quickly and with confidence as I remove honey supers from the hives. These gloves are the finest on the market. The hands are made with butter-soft goatskin leather, and are light grey in color. Long length white cotton sleeves. A friend referred to these as "her Gucci bee gloves"! Please indicate size when ordering.
