Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves
The Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves (sometimes called Raynaud's syndrome gloves or Raynaud's phenomenon gloves) harness the power of silver thread to retain heat, making them ideal if you suffer from Raynaud's disease or if you're generally more sensitive to the cold. They're also great as gloves for poor circulation, and they can even be worn as glove liners for cold weather, improving the efficacy of both your the silver gloves and your regular gloves.
Who Can Wear the Raynaud's Gloves?
The Raynaud's Disease Gloves are ideal if you suffer from Raynaud's disease. However, they are also useful for a range of other indications. You may benefit from wearing the silver-lined gloves if you suffer from any of the following conditions:
- Autoimmune disease
- Blood disorders
- Chemotherapy treatment
- Immune system disorders
- Finger ulcers
- Nerve damage
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Poor circulation
- Raynaud's Disease (primary Raynaud's disease, secondary Raynaud's disease)
- Vascular disease
Please note that while the silver gloves are suitable for the above conditions, they are not available for VAT relief due to not being designed specifically for medical use.
How Do the Raynaud's Silver Gloves Work?
The seamless Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves contain 8% silver, and this natural pure silver minimises any radiative body heat loss by actively reflecting 95% of the heat of your hands back to your skin. This reduces the amount of heat that naturally escapes, making them ideal gloves for Raynaud's.
Additionally, the silver gloves for Raynaud's also help with numbness, tingling and pain that commonly occurs where there is a constant cold. They have been designed to reduce perspiration and also have an antimicrobial fabric, making them more hygienic when compared to some of the other best gloves for cold hands. While there is no cure for Raynaud's disease, the Raynaud's treatment gloves can help you to better manage your condition.
Which Size of Gloves for Raynaud's Disease Do I Need?
The Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves are available in three sizes:
- Large/Extra Large – sized for men
- Small/Medium – sized for ladies with average-sized hands
- Extra Small – sized for children or ladies with small hands
If you are a lady with very large hands, please select the Large/Extra Large size. Similarly, if you are a man with smaller hands, please select the Small/Medium size. The measurements of the silver gloves are as follows:
|Size ||Length ||Measurement Across Palm |
|Extra Small ||190mm ||80mm |
|Small/Medium ||220mm ||90mm |
|Large/Extra Large ||235mm ||100mm |
Please note that the measurements of these gloves may vary slightly.
Can I Benefit from Gloves for Raynaud's Syndrome?
If you've only recently heard of Raynaud's disease, you're not alone. Many people people who suffer from Raynaud's symptoms often go undiagnosed for a long time, and as such are unaware of the benefits that silver gloves could have for their hands.
Raynaud's disease is a distressing condition in which the blood is temporarily prevented from reaching the fingers and toes. In its most severe form it is very painful and in secondary Raynaud's ulcerations may occur that could become gangrenous and lead to amputation. If you suffer from symptoms of Raynaud's disease, we'd recommend consulting your doctor for a diagnosis, and in the meantime it's definitely worth investing in a pair of silver gloves for Raynaud's sufferers.
What Do The Silver Gloves Feel Like to Wear?
The Raynaud's Silver Gloves are made from fine combed cotton and pure natural silver, making them soft and comfortable gloves for Raynaud's sufferers. As they shape to your hands, wrists, and fingers with ease, they allow you to keep your hands feeling warm without compromise to your dexterity. The cosy cuffs have a finish that protects the integrity of the gloves so you can wear them in comfort time and time again.
Will the Raynaud's Gloves Work with a Touchscreen?
Yes, due to the conductive nature of silver fibre, these gloves will work with the majority of touchscreen devices. This allows you to use your phone and answer calls, all while keeping your hands toasty and warm! Please note that a small number of customers report difficulty using certain types of touchscreen devices while wearing these gloves.
Can I Drive in The Silver Gloves?
The Raynaud's Silver Gloves can be worn while driving. We would, however, recommend ensuring that you are comfortable before using the gloves for this purpose.
Are These Good Typing Gloves?
As the silver gloves conform to your hands well and don't reduce your dexterity, they're perfectly fine as typing gloves for cold hands. If you do find that typing while wearing gloves is uncomfortable, then the Raynaud's Disease Fingerless Silver Gloves may be a better choice.
Are These the Warmest Gloves for Raynaud's Disease?
If you're looking for ways of how to keep hands warm, then it's natural that you'll want the best thermal gloves around. As the silver gloves retain and reflect the natural heat of your hands, these provide as much warmth as your hands! Therefore, we recommend warming up your hands before you put the gloves on. This can be done before you leave the house, or even when you're out and about with pocket-sized electronic heat such as the Double-Sided HotRox.
Depending on your own Raynaud's symptoms, you may find that the Raynaud's Disease Deluxe Silver Gloves are more effective for you. These contain 12% silver and are available in a choice of colours. Both the standard and the deluxe silver gloves work well as circulation gloves and gloves to help Raynaud's syndrome.
Can These Be Worn As Scleroderma Gloves?
While we consider the silver gloves to be one of the best gloves for Raynaud's disease, they can also be worn as scleroderma gloves. Scleroderma is a disease affecting the connective tissue, causing hard skin and also affecting internal organs.
As a result of the impact on internal organs, blood supply may become damaged. While the silver gloves would not provide a cure, wearing them for scleroderma will help to encourage blood flow in the hands, which in turn helps to improve natural warmth.
Can I Wear These As Peripheral Neuropathy Gloves?
Peripheral neuropathy to the hands and fingers can be caused by a variety of precipitating factors, including chemotherapy treatment, diabetes, and infections where the pain of nerve damage and finger ulcers can affect both genders of all ages. As sufferers are greatly hindered by persistent cold weather, the silver Raynaud's gloves can be worn as peripheral neuropathy gloves for improved hand heat retention.
Can I Wear These As Lupus Gloves?
Many individuals with lupus develop secondary Raynaud's disease as a result of inflamed nerves or blood vessels. As a result, the Raynaud's gloves may help to reduce such symptoms for individuals with lupus, making them suitable as lupus gloves when a Raynaud's attack has been triggered.
Can These Be Worn As Rheumatoid Arthritis Gloves?
The silver gloves can be worn as rheumatoid arthritis gloves in cases where the condition has triggered a Raynaud's attack. However, for more supportive thermal gloves for arthritis, we recommend the Thermoskin Arthritis Gloves, which help to boost circulation while offering gentle compression to ease pain.
Can I Wear These as Gloves for White Finger?
White finger, also known as vibration white finger (VWF) or hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), occurs following continuous use of vibration equipment. The symptoms for this form of secondary Raynaud's can be reduced with the silver gloves, but for ongoing management we recommend the Raynaud's Disease Anti-Vibration Gloves for Vibration White Finger.
How Do I Wash the Silver Gloves?
The Raynaud's Silver Gloves can be hand washed at temperatures of up to 30°C. They can then be air dried away from sources of heat.
Please note that the gloves are not suitable for washing with detergents or for ironing.
Are These Available in Any Other Colours?
Unfortunately, the Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves are only available in grey. If you're looking for more options, our top recommendation includes the Raynaud's Disease Deluxe Silver Gloves, which are available in three colours: Beige, Black and Grey.
