If you suffer from cold hands while working, but find that gloves inhibit your ability to handle tools or materials, some manufacturers make fingerless gloves that may help. But these can be expensive, so what are the alternatives?
Companies such as Toolstation or Screwfix, as well as Amazon, sell cheap work gloves with rubberised palms and fingers, including multi-packs of up to 10 pairs for not a lot of money. Try cutting the fingers off a pair of these gloves – either all of these fingers, or just the thumb and index finger to give you dexterity while keeping your other fingers warm – and you may be surprised by how much that helps to keep your hands warm. This tip came from a dinghy sailing website, and you can imagine how cold your hands would get while sailing a dinghy in winter, so it does work.
