These gloves act as a thin, breathable layer between the worker’s skin and the tools and materials they’re handling. Fabric gloves provide minimal protection against puncture hazards, jagged materials, open flames, and hot surfaces. However, they’re good for keeping hands clean and can prevent minor scrapes and abrasions.
Fabric or Cotton Gloves
This is the most common type of gloves for general work or projects where a high level of protection isn’t needed. These gloves offer a thin, lightweight fabric covering that offers little safety to the user. They’re mostly used to prevent minor scrapes or splinters, though do nothing to prevent punctures, burns or cuts.
