Women’s gardening gloves - with long fingers!

Hullo all, 

my partner struggles to find gardening gloves that fit her, she needs a medium really but all of the ones she tries are too short in the fingers. 

Can anyone recommend a manufacturer or style with longer than average fingers. 

Many thanks

    Sorry I can't help, but I do sympathise. I have the opposite problem. I struggle to find gloves small enough and the fingers of even an XS size are about half an inch too long (as well as too wide). Kids' gloves aren't long enough in the palm and wrist. It's no fun being a non-standard size :/.
    Has your partner tried a mens' small? They are longer in the fingers and come in better colours too (someone obviously thinks ladies all want pastel or flowery gloves).

    I have the same problem, as a woman with long fingers. I recommend choosing medium sized men's gloves.

    Several years ago this question was asked and this was one of the recommendations

    That was the brand I was going to suggest as I use them all the time. They are best for weeding - they are too fine for dealing with thorny subjects. The great thing is they are washable and fit extremely well. My friends all wear them, too, and between us you could not get a more diverse range of hand sizes and finger length.
