kids archery gloves

Postby kate/bob » Mon May 26, 2014 12:07 pm

Hi,

the not-so-small-one has been bitten by the archery bug. She's got a bow and I'm in the process of making blunts, but I can't find a glove that looks medievalish. As she's going to be shooting blunts with plastic nocks I'm not that worried about it being totally authentic, I'm more concerned with making sure that she doesn't get put off archery by being hurt while she's learning.

Any pointers from grown ups of budding Robin Hoods?

Tescos (of all places) in their click and collect section had yellow leather gardening gloves at £7/pair. Colour can be altered as needed but the gloves themselves are pretty damned good - I use them (suitably padded) as Vike accaeptable combat gloves. I also use another pair for gardening( :-) ).

I probably should've been clearer - the not-so-small-one is much bigger than she used to be, but is only six! Do they have kids gardening gloves too? That's what I use for shooting on the field, but have only seen plasticy kids gloves

The only place I've seen natural leather gloves in kids sizes at a reasonable price was riding gloves. I picked some up in to fir a small ladies hand sizes at one of the out of town pet places that also has a riding section, and if I remember right they had smaller kids sizes too.

I bought a pair of very small leather gloves a couple of weeks ago in poundland. I think they had them because they were tiny

I hadn't thought of riding gloves. I'll venture out to the horsey, farm shop tomorrow when I'm out and have a spy.

thanks for the suggestions
