Dragon-hide gloves (or dragonskin gloves) are protective gloves made from the hide of dragons. As dragon hide is very tough, as well as being resistant to spells, these types of gloves are exceptionally useful in protecting the wearer from a multitude of dangers, such as burning or being bitten.
During a lesson in which Rubeus Hagrid had his fourth year Care of Magical Creatures students take the Blast-Ended Skrewts for a walk in 1994, he advised that they might to put on their dragon-hide gloves as an added precaution. They are required by fifth years in 1995 for Care of Magical Creatures class at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
These gloves are also highly useful and practical for Herbology, particularly with the handling and cultivating of various dangerous plants.
