Do you have a writer in your house? Here we have several writers and were thrilled when we were contacted by Literary Book Gifts to review Cashmere Writing Gloves. Read on to see what my daughter thought of them.

Cashmere Writing Gloves Product Review
We are reviewing a pair of Heather Gray colored 35% cashmere writing gloves made by Sparsil® and sold at Literary Book Gifts.com. In addition to cashmere, they are also made of cotton, polyester and microfiber material. When you order, you notice that they do not have a size, it's a “one size fits all” sort of thing. They are knit so I imagine they would stretch if a person had large hands.
I decided to have my daughter, Mercedes, review them as she does wear stylish accessories like that. She is sixteen and is a modern day writer. She will “write” her books using a laptop and keypad. Often, she likes to draw her own pictures to go with her books on a digital graphics tablet as well.
They fit her hands perfectly and did not need to stretch. She is an average sized medium woman with an average height of 5 feet 5 inches.
I examined the gloves to see if there were any imperfections in the stitching. I couldn't find any. There were no loose threads sticking out anywhere and I did not find any problems inside of them either. They are very well made and do not seem like they would come apart easily.
I am disappointed that there were no washing instructions included with the product that I could find. Yet I am pleased that there was not an annoying tag to cut off inside the gloves. I will have to search online to figure out how to wash this kind of material properly. Mercedes doesn't get very dirty so we will not need to clean them often. Until I have time to research it, I plan to hand wash them and lay out to dry.
What The Cashmere Writing Gloves Looked When Sealed
These were shipped from another country so it took some time to arrive, but not as long as I had expected. They arrived in mint condition. This is what they looked like in their factory sealed packaging. I like that it was covered with a clear plastic bag. If the shipping package would have been dropped in a mud puddle, for example, I feel that the gloves would have been protected from getting wet or damaged. The plastic bag was easy to remove the product from. As you can see in the photo below towards the right side, you just pull up on the flap and it gently unsticks from itself and you can get the gloves out easily.
Mercedes said it was a nice color. I agree. This neutral “heather gray” color should match about anything she owns.
What Do Cashmere Writing Gloves Feel Like?
Mercedes tried them on right away. She said they fit fairly well. There is no elastic, it is all knit. They feel soft and cozy. It did not appear to be too tight on her anywhere. It also did not appear to be stretched out.
Do The Writing Gloves Work For Typing?
Aside from the fact that they look elegant, they keep your hands warm and do not interfere with your fingers trying to type. So yes, they do work very well for typing.
Will The Writing Gloves Work For Digital Drawing?
In the past, when using her graphics tablet, Mercedes felt that her skin would stick to the surface and make her lines “jolty”. With the cashmere writing gloves, her hand doesn't stick to the surface, even if they are sweaty. She feels it makes her lines smoother. They are a “must-have” for digital drawing.
Can I Still Drink My Coffee In Writing Gloves?
It is still very easy to grasp the handle of her coffee mug. Now she can drink her coffee in style!
Other Uses for the cashmere writing gloves
I have seen Mercedes use these gloves in a variety of ways. Here are some of them…
Doing pencil drawings in her sketch book – again, these gloves would make for smooth rather than jolty lines.
Carrying in groceries from the vehicle – and putting them away.
On outings in early Spring when it is rather cool but not cold enough for full Winter Gloves.
She often wears them when reading a book. Yes, most writers are readers too!
I have seen her wear them when playing a card game.
When babysitting my younger children.
She wears them when training her dog in agility or obedience.
Texting to friends on her smartphone.
Doing her school work or homework.
I like how they look on my daughters' hands and the neutral color matches just about anything she wears. She seems to like them as she wears them quite often, and in public!
I think these would be a great gift for a teen girl, even if she is not a writer. A teen girl would enjoy it because it looks very stylish and feels soft to the touch.
These would be great for a techy person who enjoys using the computer or digital drawing pads or for someone who would like to keep their hands a little warmer yet still have full use of their fingers.
I can see myself wearing them in the early mornings, when typing out blog posts on the computer. I would try a different color though, like the Heather Navy Blue or Dark Green. The one complaint I do have is that the website doesn't allow you to see the different colors on-screen at this time. I am hoping they will change that soon so all the color choices can be seen.
