100% Cotton Knit Sleeping Gloves (Set of 3 Pairs)
These are definitely not the old, high quality, gloves VCS used to carry. The new ones are so much chintzier. But! I cannot find anyone else who carries this type of glove. I cannot survive cold weather without them. Very handy for wearing to bed after putting heavy cream on my hands, especially the finger tips. To help keep them from shrinking too much, I wash them, stretch them, then air dry them. It helps.

I've purchased these gloves in the past to use particularly in the dry air winter months. However, the sets I received recently are not the same quality. They are thin, ill fitting, and won't last long I'm certain.

knit sleeping gloves
I use these inside my wrist braces to keep them from chafing my hands. They work great. They do shrink a little when washing. I may order a larger size next time.

Not What They Used To Be
I bought these gloves for my wife last Christmas after several years of excellent service from the previous pairs.
These are not the same gloves and are not even the same as pictured. The pictured ones have the vertical stitches on the back of the glove. The new ones do not. The new ones are made of a flimsy, knit material that wore holes within weeks of receipt.
The new ones shrink to a size that makes them difficult to put on.
Along with the material wearing, the seams also split within weeks.
The sizes offered are Small-Medium (which means extra small) and Medium-Large which as it turns out also means extra small.
Please being back the old style. The new ones are not worth buying even at half the current price.

Quality is not the same
My mother ordered these gloves several years ago. She needed replacements,so I ordered more. We were disappointed with these gloves;they were noticeably thinner and not of the same quality as the ones in previous years. Unfortunately I had to send them back.

fit well, practical.
My mother is having severe skin problems on her hands and these gloves are helpful to cover her hands after using heavy cream.

Bring Back Your Former Sleep Gloves
After reading recent reviews about flimsiness, holes & seams tearing in the sleeping gloves you now offer, I know these are NOT the former sleep gloves I ordered from Vermont Country Store a few years ago. Those gloves you offered when I purchased them were sturdy, roomy, 100% cotton knit, and most importantly, held up over time. The only problem was losing one or two now and then.
It seemed easier to pick my size then. It seemed there were more size choices & staff indicated women's equivalent to men's. My hands get too hot with hand cream in tight sleeping gloves. Also, the tighter gloves split where the thumb seam is near the forefinger. Your old sleeping gloves never did split.
Although I need more sleeping gloves, after reading the above reviews I am hesitant to order the ones you now offer. Hopefully Vermont Country Store will bring back the old ones, or at least a new line of sleeping gloves that are sturdy, roomy & comfy, 100% cotton knit, and can be put in the dryer at low setting. (Laying gloves flat to dry are inconvenient, and look more cluttered).
