REVIEW: GRANDOE'S Homespun Cozee Gloves

Imagine it is one of those cold, blustery, snowing winter days.  You have to shovel the sidewalk to make your way to your car, then you have to sweep off your car.  Yes, you know what I am talking about.......okay, here is a product that is going to help you through some of those tough days and help you stay warm and protected.  The GRANDOE Corporation has created a fabulous Homespun Comfort Collection:  Knit Inspired Gloves in Fun Patterns and Colors.  They are sensational!  In addition to being exceptional quality, effectively warm and comfortable, they have added a most innovative element to some of the styles:  The Homespun  Cozee Glove that offers an aloe treated snowfleece lining to soften your hands as you wear them, now how genius is that?!  I was smiling cheek to cheeck when my pair of these fascinating gloves arrived.  They are awesome! Here is some background information about GRANDOE'S FALL/WINTER 2012 HOMESPUN COLLECTION and the HOMESPUN COZEE GLOVES:

{Adapted from the Lipton Publicity Press Release}

The Homespun Glove ($35) is a fun extended length glove with a little gathering on the sides. The length of this glove and the fleece lining will keep your hands toasty warm and comfortable. Another great style, the Homespun Cozee ($35) glove, has an aloe treated snowfleece lining to soften your hands as you wear them. The lining (polyester) is also extended giving the glove a small cuff. Homespun Cozee has whipstitch detail giving the glove a more homemade appearance. The microsuede palm is water resistant. The Homespun Glove and the Homespun Cozee are both available in women's sizes S-XL and are knit with polyester yarns. If you want more adaptability in a glove, there is also the Homespun Flip Mitt ($35). This style has open ended fingers with a mitt covering that flips up or down. Flip it up for accessibility, flip it down for warmth. The Flip Mitt has a soft fleece lining, microfleece cuff and a pretty frosted faux fur trim on the edge of the mitt. This style is available in sizes S-L. Each of the Homespun gloves are available in four unique patterns: Moose Tracks, Snowflake, Rainbow and Lavender. The styling and features create a happy feeling while providing warmth and comfort.


The most gracious folks over at Lipton Publicity Sent me a beautiful pair of GRANDOE Homespun Cozee Gloves in the festive Moose Tracks Pattern. They are magnificent! It is like giving your hands a spa treatment as you are wearing the gloves outside in the cold harsh elements, how cool is that?! They are both classic yet really chic and stylish.

GRANDOE Homespun Cozee Gloves
Price: $35
Color/Patterns: Moose Tracks, Snowflake, Rainbow and Lavender


First I must say that these very fine gloves are meticulously rendered, of the highest quality and not only visibly chic, but so durable!  You slide them onto your hands and you can immediately feel how soft, warm and extremely soft they are against your skin!  Who knew that you could infuse aloe into the lining of a pair of gloves so that the gloves can treat your skin as you wear them out in the harsh winter elements, to me that is so innovative!

The knit backing of the glove is decorated with a classic Moose Track Pattern.  I remember when I was in high school I had a favorite winter sweater I used to wear skiing that had this very same pattern.  When I saw these gloves it brought back such fun youthful memories and I think it is brilliant that a classic pattern like this is still a favorite for us all!

I love that the palm portion of the glove is crafted in microsuede that is also waterproof so you can grip onto things easily, like with a shovel, hahaa, we know we will be doing a lot of that this winter!  The gloves form to the shape of your hands for added comfort which is another exciting feature.  I plan to give several of my family members a pair of these unique stylish gloves for holiday gifts, I know it won't be something they already have, and they will love that the gloves are lined with extended aloe treatments!  That will really blow their minds and they will love receiving these as gifts.

These festive retro patterns are ageless and timeless and are the ultimate in fashionable and functional women's gloves.

This concludes my review.
