I have always had cold hands, uncomfortably cold hands. I have gone through a lot of gloves, thick and thin, to use while typing and it was either too bulky or too thin or just restrictive. My life has literally changed using this set of alpaca gloves...my hands are warm, they aren't dry (aloe i guess?) and I am going to sleep in them because i see no reason to take them off when i go to bed. They are addictively great gloves.
