Is there any other type of glove that I can wear around the house and still get my work done? Also, one of my favorite products for m feet is ordinary rice. I pour rice into an old, but no holes, sock. Tie off the top and then pop in the microwave for 2 minutes. I then put it at the foot of my bed under the covers to warm the sheets before I go to bed. I also use the rice socks when I am watching TV or reading. I just put them over my feet and it warms my whole lower body. If I could just find something for my hands…
You might want to try wearing nitrile(surgical) gloves underneath thin glove liners, or the white cotton gloves found in beauty supply stores.

Have you tried gardening gloves? They’re rubberized on the finger tips and cotton on the back. You can get them in different weights from quite fine to thermal. I use them in the garden and have 3 pairs depending on the weather. The lightest ones are good for fine work out there. The heavy ones are bulkier. I don’t know if I’d want to use them for housework.
