Children’s Gloves – Must Have Winter Items for Protection Against Cold

Your kids can bravely take on the snow with the right children’s winter gloves. Keep their hands toasty when the temperatures drop by shopping for gloves that blend style with function.

Children’s winter gloves come in a variety of colours, materials, fits, and styles, from cosy little mittens to thermal insulated gloves. It makes sense to buy multiple pairs every year or so, as kids tend to wear out and soil their gloves fast.

Your children will have no trouble building snowmen in gloves that protect their hands and allow complete mobility. Your job as a parent is to look for gloves with stretch. Those with articulated finger designs are ideal especially for older children, as it allows the fingers to move, grip, and bend easily. Does your child like to stay active during the winter, enjoying snow sports? Then gloves that are designed with grip palms for better traction are best.

The warmest winter gloves for freezing temperatures are constructed with three layers for maximum warmth. The gloves should have (1) an outer shell that is waterproof, (2) a great insulation layer, and a lining with moisture-management features. When it gets really cold, you want to make sure that your children’s gloves have elasticized wrists to keep the warmth in and the wind out. The elastic also ensures that their gloves stay on their hands as they play and go about their day.

Will you be taking your kids with you on a ski holiday? Then they need special gear. For added warmth in the snowy slopes, choose children’s gloves with waterproof outer shells (not just water-resistant, but waterproof). You should also choose ski gloves made with quick-drying fabrics. The best ski gloves are ergonomic, with a pre-curved fit that feel more natural on the hands.

Children Gloves – Must Wear During the Cold Season

It’s not hard to shop for winter gear, especially when you know what you are looking for. When shopping for children‘s gloves, there are many options that you can choose from, whether you are shopping for quality, durability, style, comfort, or a combination of all these criteria. Children have active lifestyles, especially during winter days when they have to constantly be in motion to keep the cold out. Children’s gloves come in a wide variety of styles, designs, and fabrics to serve different purposes and functions, from protecting their hands from cold puddles of melted snow to keeping them warm while playing outside.

Fleece and cotton mitts are great choices for infants. Not only will this hand wear keep their little hands warm—they can also protect their face and body from accidental scratches. Stretch fabric winter gloves made from a blend of acrylic and spandex are also great choices for small children when temperatures are not freezing. They are breathable yet they provide enough heat so your kid’s hands stay warm. Stretch fabric gloves are the most versatile when it comes to style and design, as they can be printed with fun drawings and patterns. However, if you want the best insulation, go for fleece gloves with thermal linings and several layers of heat trapping materials. This way, your kid can stay warm even during the harshest of winter weather. Fleece gloves are extremely comfortable and they come with adjustable straps to fit all sizes. Some even have palm grips and flexible designs so as not to restrict movement. You might also want to consider ski gloves if you plan to go on active outdoor adventures.

Universal Textiles carries a wide range of winter gear and stylish thermal clothing for the entire family. We support over 316 different brands, giving you access to the best quality clothing that are fashionable, stylish, and durable at the most affordable prices.

Winter Gloves for Kids

Keeping a child warm when going outside in winter is made easier with gloves. Children’s gloves come in all colours and styles so even the fussiest child is sure to find something they like from the collection. Winter gloves for kids come in several different designs, including padded thermal gloves suitable for extremely cold days or even skiing trips. The grip on the palms of the gloves makes holding things while wearing them easier, although they are not too bulky as to make movement difficult.

There are styles to suit both boys and girls, and even newborn baby mittens. The camouflage print thermal gloves might be the perfect addition for the young Action Man, because the fleecy fabric means they are lightweight and not bulky while still very warm. Little girls, however, will probably prefer the same style in pink or purple. The newborn baby mittens are made of a very soft fabric that can be worn by the baby all day. Not only will they help to keep the baby warm, they will also prevent the baby from accidently scratching himself. The elasticated wristbands prevent the baby from removing them.

Choosing winter gloves for kids can be made easier by buying Magic gloves. Magic gloves are ideal for the child who is growing rapidly. Magic gloves appear to be very small but will fit almost any child-sized hand. There is no need to worry that the child will grow out of them too soon either as they stretch to fit.
