What a nice surprise it was to see The Writer’s Glove show up on Laptops to Lullabies, where it was featured as one of five “Weird-but-Awesome Desktop Hacks.” The site is operated by Heather Laura Clarke, a newspaper journalist and blogger in Canada. It doesn’t get much better than that!
They’re thin silk gloves that fit snugly and you can still type normally — even on touchscreens like my iPhone. They’re 20 bucks, U.S., and come with free shipping. I have the extra-small size and they’re fantastic.
The article is full of other terrific “hacks” helpful for anyone who puts in a lot of keyboard time. I especially like number five, seeing as how I drop my iPhone about as many times a day. Read the full article here.
Since I can’t slip a pair of The Writer’s Glove onto your hands in-person via the magic of the Internet (someone get on that), I figured to share with you some pics of customers wearing these gloves. You’ll notice right away what makes The Writer’s Glove different from fingerless gloves that also try to keep your hands warm while you type on a keyboard. It’s not fingerless!

And don’t forget about this terrific video from a customer who filmed herself typing with the gloves on:
If you’d like to try The Writer’s Glove for yourself, I’d be happy to send a pair out to you. I never charge shipping when you order from me directly.
As always, shipping is free, but if you’re outside of the United States you should be aware that extra fees may still apply. Some customers are mistaking “free shipping” with “free delivery.” I only cover the cost of shipping, which is usually a few bucks. That gets your purchase to your local post office. If your area imposes additional fees related to making a purchase for a product originating in the United States, that is on you.
I don’t like those extra fees any more than you do, but I also have zero say in how your country handles these things. If I did, I wouldn’t be in the glove business.
I hope the first few weeks of 2017 have been good to you. Enjoy your gloves!
