Hi. I had a peccary glove with wool linen. It’s incredible warm and soft. Now I’m considering unlined version and I find Carpincho unlined glove. Anyone can share the review comparing Carpincho with Peccary, also very soft and warm? Thanks !

Carpincho is a suede-like material; Not sure on the warmness as it will be unlined so there is no real difference in warmth. Peccary is probably a little more stretchy as opposed to Carpincho but both are soft.

Yes I agree, one-piece is a must! The Fort Belvedere hydropeccary looks promising, but I've read reviews that the texture is not quite the same as natural peccary. Their gloves look nice, but my biggest hesitation with them is regarding their fit. Reviews seem to indicate that they have a wide palm and shorter fingers than some other makers.
I have also had problems with fit in gloves from Fort Belvedere, though they were gloves in lamb skin, not peccary. My hands measure 8 inches around, so I thought a size 8 would fit me. I ordered a pair in this size but they were too short as well as too tight in the fingers. I tried size 8.5. They fit very snugly---in fact, so snugly that I could not tolerate the constriction of my fingers (and I certainly do not have thick fingers). I finally went with size 9. Even though these left room in the tips, I thought at least that they would not be too tight. But they were. So, after taking three shipments of gloves, I ended up with nothing.

These were cashmere-lined gloves. The impression that they gave me was that they had been designed to fit without a lining, and then a lining had been added without appropriate adjustment to the cut. This speculation may be entirely wrong, but in any case, the gloves pinched my fingers to a degree that I found quite uncomfortable. Perhaps they could be stretched to fit, but I don't own a glove-finger-stretching apparatus, if there is such a thing.

Interesting. I tried a pair also in size 8, and found them to fit very well with the exception of my thumb being slightly further down than the glove's placement.
I feel like gloves can be hard to offer a one size fits most like many try to do.

Indeed, one can't fault a company for their ready-to-wear glove fit, as long as the hand circumference measurement is as advertised. Longer fingers, shorter fingers, wider palms, lower placed thumb, etc--just need to find the make that fits one's hand best, sometimes a bit of trial and error. Or, go bespoke, if one feels it's worth the investment.
