Our Best Wood Burner Stove Gloves 2021

Tuesday, 5 January 2021

Wood burners are a great way to keep warm during winter, using huge amounts of air to provide warmth that can keep your room comfortable and cosy for hours. They are cost-effective too, saving you money through winter on gas and electricity. Unfortunately, every year many people are injured by using wood stoves incorrectly, usually through burns to your hands.
