I'm going to try it on my present mitts as I have a box of gloves ............. but I suspect you are correct.

Just tried it.
No problems whatsoever, and in fact, the mitts just slid on easier than with an ungloved hand.

Why not just put sanitiser on your hands, try gloves on as you would have done pre-Covid, then more sanitiser after you are done, with no touching your face in between?

Until I either get to Evans or phone to ask, I don't know what their policy is regarding clothing of any kind, let alone their mitts.

These look nice.

Trouble is with me, is that I have big hands but not massive ones, and I seem to lie between Large and Extra-Large .......... hence why I want to try them on first.

At that price you don't want to get it wrong! Especially if, like me, one hand is slightly bigger than the other .. Good luck
