Woodburning fires provide a wonderful ambiance during those chilly winter evenings, but they can also be dangerous for the one supplying the flames with wood. Protect your hands from burns and splinters with a pair of insulated fire retardant gloves. Made from either cowhide or leather, these gloves are extremely durable and fire retardant. You can add wood to your cozy fire without worry about splinters or burns. Most gloves continue well above the wrist to protect any part of your arm that may be exposed to the flames.
