Halfords

Think I've found a bargain on this one:

I bought a pure wool mitt from Halfords on offer for £8. I got it a couple of weeks ago not expecting much, but having compared it to the CYC and Megs ones I use, I think it's easily an equal.

I have done a couple of washes and it glides over the paint on my Jag and so far has not lost any wool.

It even has a hanging hook to make drying easier.

The only downside I can see is that it is grey, making it harder to spot dirt in the fibres.

Hopefully this saves someone a bit of money.

I've had a Halfords lambswool mitt for a couple of years now and its still looks like new.

I do think they are impressive for what little they cost.

I *think* mine is actually the sheepskin one - its grey and a couple of years ago i reckon i paid under £10 for it. Its super soft, hasn't lost any hair or deteriorated and it still smells fresh.
