Etre to offer Touchy gloves for touchscreens
With the brisk autumn winds on their way, maybe you’re thinking of unpacking your cold-weather gear. Well, if you’re wondering how in the world you can use your iOS device’s touchscreen while wearing those bulky mittens, Etre has just the gloves for you.
The UK company’s Touchy gloves have the thumb and index fingers cut off, leaving those digits free to tap, slide, and swipe. The gloves, which come in small, medium, and large, are made of lamb’s wool, so they should be soft and toasty warm. Nine color combinations, some of which include stripes and leather trim, means there’s plenty of choice to find the pair that’s right for you.
The 2010-11 Touchy gloves will go on sale November 1; a pair will cost £20 (about $32 at current exchange rates).
