I am so EXCITED!  I ordered kid gloves from Dadant - thinking they could be for my grandson.  I have struggled for two years now with my gloves that have 1 inch left over at the finger tips and are therefore klutzy and awkward to wear.  The gloves came and they are Dadant XXS and are a perfect fit for me!!!!!!!

Since beekeeping clothing is not designed for women, here's a find - order kid gloves instead of regular gloves and you won't have to be an awkward beekeeper  (actually these are stamped XXS so are probably adult gloves in an XXS, even though marketed as kid gloves)

FYI.

I say if you wear gloves at all, wear some kind of latex glove, they give the best dexterity, and you can get them anywhere. Playtex living, stripping gloves, etc...

If I wear latex, I sweat so much that in pulling them off, there's a ton of liquid that comes off too - so uncomfortable.  I wear gloves because I get a pretty odd reaction to stings - the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet itch like crazy - so I try to avoid giving the girls the opportunity.

Linda, my hands look like they're 150 yrs old after I take the gloves off, but oh, the dexterity.

I just buy leather driving gloves and tuck them into the elastic sleeves on my jacket.  I don't buy "bee" gloves.
