To protect the wearer's hands
Dragon-hide gloves (or dragon skin gloves) protect the wearer from incidents such as burning. These were on the list of requirements for first year students, and could be purchased at Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions for sixty-two Sickles. 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.
