Creative Comfort: Crafter's Comfort Gloves Review

Its seems like I've been doing more and more sewing and crafting since Emma was born. Whether I'm making diapers or wipes, clothes or toys, I'm always working on something.  And since I've find myself making such tiny baby sized items, I've noticed that its taking its toll on my hands.   Spending hours at the sewing machine or sewing things by hand has been making my hands ache and the joints in my fingers sore.

I used to work for a company that coordinated medical equipment and quite often I would get orders for gloves that would help ease the discomfort of arthritis, carpal tunnel and even promote circulation for healing and swelling reduction.  I always thought that would be something great to have at home because of how cramped my hands get when I sew.

Well it turns out, I was in luck!  Creative Comfort, a new line by Prym Consumer USA Inc., happens to make crafter's gloves.  Creative Comfort has a great line of crafter's gloves, supports and braces. 

I was sent a pair of Creative Comfort Crafter's Comfort Gloves to try and I absolutely love them!  They are soft, comfortable and fit perfectly.  I guess I should say......fits like a glove!! And to top it all off, they were designed in the U.S. by an orthopedic surgeon!

 Creative Comfort Crafter's Comfort Gloves are design to help sooth hand pain, swelling and even help with arthritis.  They're even great for keeping your hands warm in a cold house!  Of course, its August in Iowa right now so I definitely don't have to worry about cold hands at the moment but I cant wait to wear these this winter while I'm sewing and its below zero outside.  Our 103 year old house tends to get pretty chilly in the winter months. 

Creative Comfort Gloves are also recognized by the Arthritis Foundation Ease-Of-Use Commendation!  If you're not familiar with the Arthritis Foundation Ease-Of-Use Commendation, it recognizes products that are easy to use and shown to improve life and make tasks easier for people who suffer from arthritis and other physically limiting conditions.  All products recognized by the Arthritis Foundation Ease-of-Use Commendation are thoroughly tested by experts and by people with arthritis.  

The gloves are made from 92% cotton and 8% spandex.  They are very soft, washable, breathable and provide mild compression for comfort, warmth, circulation and to help control swelling.  They have open finger tips to allow freedom to do everyday tasks and projects and for better grip.  They come in size small, medium and large.  In case you're unsure of the size, there happens to be a size chart on the side of the box.  Mine fit just perfectly!

They're also so easy to care for!  Just hand wash in cold water and air dry.  Simple and quick!  The price is really reasonable too.  You can purchase them in store or online from Joann Fabric and Craft Stores!

I would highly recommend a pair of these if you do any sort of sewing or crafting!  I dont think I'll be sewing without them from now on. These are just one of the many products we've come to love and count on from Prym Consumer USA Inc!

  1. I need to get a pair of these for my aunt. She loves to knit and has been knitting for many, many years. I just started knitting, but I'm definitely not at her level of skill.

    1. The gloves would be perfect for knitting! Especially in the colder weather. One thing I cant do well is knit. I know how but am not very good at it. Im better with crocheting. My best friend is the queen of knitting. She actually made the dress that Emma is wearing in my "Emma Bee's First Watermelon" post photo :)

  2. I love doing crafts I'm just learning how to sew I'll have to get a pair of these this winter. Thanks for the review.These would make a nice gift too.
