If it is Scotch thistle, the spines will penetrate even leather gloves.
I know thiis from personal experience.
Now, I use an herbicide on thistle. When it is dead, I use a pruning
saw or hoe to cut it down and then a rake or potato hook to handle it.
I never touch it.
A cheap solution:
Every try to push a sewing needle through adhesive tape?
I use ordinary leather work gloves and wrap them with a layer or two of duct
tape. This works well for handling rose and raspberry canes.
