"These are advertised as knitter's gloves, but I am not a knitter. I have had hand surgeries and my hands would become stiff and sore from using the computer, holding a book, etc. These gloves feel good and make my hands feel better.
I've mentioned them to several friends who are knitters.
I would buy them again.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. I do not have any problem with the quality.
I was disappointed because the size was not true to other gloves I have ordered from other stores. I wasn't able to even try them on. The medium will probably fit my 14 yr old niece so I'm sending them to her! Only problem is that she doesn't need stress relief!! The medium size was so small that I doubt the large would fit.
As someone who does detailed work with her hands, I like to wear compression gloves as a preventative measure to help me maintain their health. However, so many of the gloves are that awful flesh tone which just looks "old-lady" and they can also be quite expensive. The Lion brand gloves are a bright superhero blue which any teenage hot-topic shopper would be proud to sport. I've even gotten compliments on them when wearing them out in public. They material is soft, they are quite comfortable and hand wash nicely. I really notice a difference in how long I can work when wearing these gloves. They aren't always available, so this time I bought several pairs. I find that after about 6 months in the Texas heat or longer in the winter they've stretched out and need replacing to be really therapeutic, but for around $$ each, its totally worth it.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, tight stitching
I bought two pairs for two friends, having used my own for more than two years. If you like to knit and crochet, but have arthritis in your thumbs, these gloves provide support at one-fourth the price of orthopedic or OT devices. They're easy to put on and take off, and easy to clean as well.
bought these gloves for my wife and she's been able to crochet without pain. she had been unable to manipulate the crochet hook due to diabetic neuropathy. she's very happy to be able to be productive again.
I have pain in my wrists from over using during crocheting and it even hurts when I use my kindle. I used my kindle all night last night with these on and it didn't hurt at all. The color isn't true to the packaging but I didn't buy them for the color.
I've only tried the gloves once or twice since ordering, because I only need them on those certain days when my hands feel achy and stiff due to cold weather or repetitive motions. The gloves fit well, not too tight (I can leave my rings on and wear them OK). They give decent support to my hands and wrists. I was worried they might be too tight based on other reviews, but they're fine. I have average sized hands.
