Especially when doing the pruning, it is necessary to wear long gloves to protect your hands and forearms.

The rose thorns are very unforgiving. Rub your hand or arm against the cane while pruning, tying long canes, and even fertilizing, and the thorns will leave you wishing you hadn't.
Check out the premium gloves that are listed above. I find the price to be very reasonable for such good quality gardening gloves for roses.
When working around the rose canes, you need a thick glove that the thorns can't penetrate. They also have to be durable, long lasting, and breathable so that your hands don't sweat while wearing them.
The shorter gloves (I call my everyday gardening gloves) are fine for weeding, or working in other parts of your flower garden, (and you need a pair or two of them also,) but when it comes to working around the roses, you need to protect yourself.
Even tying up the climbers calls for using long gloves made specifically for roses!

Such gloves with long arm protection can be used for more than caring for roses, my friend uses hers for clearing an area (to make a new garden), that has poison Ivy growing in it. No worries when your hands and arms are totally protected.
I found the best place to get these gloves for gardening with roses, is to order them on-line. Finding the long ones made for roses in stores can sometimes be difficult.
Order a pair for yourself, or if you have a friend who gardens with roses (or other thorny plants) consider giving a pair as a gift.
