Donkey Gloves Unisex Fabric Gardening Gloves, Extra Large

I've been wearing Donkey Gloves since they were launched by Horticulturist and former Blue Peter gardener Clare Cooke in 2018. Since then, they've gained the attention of keen gardeners and gardening journalists, landing a BBC Gardeners' World Magazine' Best Buy' in 2022 and being chosen as The Telegraph's 'Best Gardening Gloves' in 2024. Profits from Donkey Gloves support Clare's Farm, a private animal sanctuary on Dartmoor. 

To work out your size, measure around the widest part of your hand, which is usually below your knuckles and above your thumb. The measurement needs to be in inches, e.g. 9" = glove size 9 = Large. You may need to order one size up if you have particularly long or wide fingers.

6.5-7" = glove size 6.5-7 = Small
7-8" = glove size 7-8 = Medium
8-9" = glove size 8-9 = Large
9-10" = glove size 9-10 = Extra Large

When you receive your gloves, check they fit before removing them from the hanging label in case you need to return them.
