Wait, Goat Leather?

All of our gloves are primarily made of goat leather (the entire body, palm, thumb, gunn fingers, and back of hand) because it performs the best. Soft, supple and extremely durable. Furthermore, it keeps those attributes after years of wear and many wet/dry cycles. The reason the goat drys soft and supple is because of the inherent natural oils in the goat skin (and subsequent leather) also known as lanolin. Cowhide doesn't have these natural oils, so when it gets wet and then dry the leather become stiff, dry and brittle, thus making it wear out faster and not be form fitting to the hand.
