Warm waterproof washing gloves

I usually use Cotton gardening gloves inside the black thick household gloves from the supermarket. I want to use a single glove that’s able to keep hands warmer in this lovely winter weather.

What are you folks using. looking at suppliers for industry it’s hard to tell what are suited to immersing in a wash bucket?

I use these https://www.amazon.co.uk/ThxToms-Glo.../dp/B01EAIR384 inside a wash mitt and they work well. They can get very slippery however.

Search for Sealskinz and you'll find good waterproof gloves.

I use marigold version of these, seem to keep my hands warm enough. Also long enough to keep sleeves dry.

Just ordered a pair from Millets last night and they arrived today. Used promo Sale20 and got them for £23 including delivery. Hurry though as they are selling fast normally around £37 a pair.

I used to have some sealskinz but now wear a pair of running gloves underneath long cuffed nitrile gloves.

Sealskinz are ok but no good for when it's cold, mine are completely waterproof but when it's cold my hands are too - it doesn't help that my water doesn't freeze so it's permanently ground temperature in winter.
