I recommend turtle doves wrist warmers. Recycled cashmere so lovely and soft. I dont have reynauds though.

IMO, the key thing is that your wrists need to be warm too, so they need to come up your forearm. I usually wear Manbi microfleece wrist warmers, but have just got some of the Turtle Dove ones for a change.
Someone bought me some fingerless gloves with silver in as they were supposed to be great, but they are useless

I have the ones from Turtle Dove. They are made from cashmere clothing, so effectively recycled. All my relatives got a pair for Christmas last year and they all love them

Turtledoves wrist warmers, definitely. I'm wearing mine right now in a freezing indoor skate park and my hands are toasty.

Another vote for turtle dove. I bloody love mine.

Turtle doves!

And yet another vote for Turtle Doves

Try those fingerless gloves that have a flap over them - “glittens” as they’re sometimes called. The flap buttons back.

I got some in Fatface last year.

How does the sizing work for the manbis?

I can’t wear the mittens that fold over as I’m using some equipment that needs fingertips! So they are too bulky , but thanks for suggestion.
I bought some compression fingerless gloves last year which are ok but not great.
Have been eyeing up the turtle doves as it comes up on insta a lot .
Do they go over your fingers though too

I bought some turtle doves for my sister last Christmas, having seen people recommending them on here. She has Raynaud's Syndrome and an underactive thyroid and is always cold so I was hoping they were as good as everyone says, but a bit sceptical. She says the first time she wore them to walk the dog she was disappointed but by the time she'd got back home she had forgotten about them and was amazed how warm her hands were. She wouldn't be without them now so it seems they really do work.

Definitely turtledoves I had Reynards and they were great.

Hmm, would turtles doves work for my thumb joint that gets painful when it gets cold?

NotMeNoNo Fri 25-Sep-20 18:30:31

Turtle Doves come up to about the first knuckle. Otherwise look for cashmere/wool/alpaca fingerless gloves? Or get knitting?

Sentos Fri 25-Sep-20 19:06:34

Ah, I thought they just did the wrist warmers, but have found the ones that go to the knuckle now, thank you

I've stumbled across this and so excited at the thought of warm hands.
Would you recommend the turtle dove wrist earners or fingerless gloves? If wrist warmers do you wear with other gloves??

Hobbes8 Fri 25-Sep-20 19:21:48

I’ve just bought my first pair of turtle doves wrist warmers and I love them.

I bought some insulated ones from next last year. Men's section, but a small fit fine. Used them at -13 when I wanted to take pictures of the kids. Stupid touch screen cameras!

I am immensely skeptical about the turtle gloves. Probably because facebook constantly advertised them at me. And they push back uncomfortably under full finger gloves (yes of course I double glove when I go out, especially when cycling).

Otherwise can't see anything special about turtle gloves, and know from experience that design doesn't help me much.

BaseDrops Fri 25-Sep-20 19:36:13

I’ve got the fingerless gloves which keep my hands and wrists amazingly warm. I quite fancy adding the wrist warmers for extra length.

BikeRunSki Fri 25-Sep-20 19:37:34

I was going to say Turtle Doves!

MrsPnut Fri 25-Sep-20 19:38:37

I have cashmere fingerless wrist warmers, not turtle dove but purpose made. I can’t be without them because they really work.

There's nothing "special" as such about them other than they're made from recyled cashmere which is an ethical and sustainable choice and they're super soft and warm.
