The thimble is a staple for every sewing stash but the basic thimble has its limitations and isn’t always the best or most comfortable option, especially when it comes to the exacting needs of specialised or prolonged stitch work! It isn’t always the tip of the finger that needs protection and many of us prefer softer, more flexible and breathable options such as leather.
Clover have come up with thimble designs in durable, quality materials that are extremely practical and adjustable to fit a wide range of finger sizes and, most importantly, are supremely comfortable to wear and perfect for your sewing style.
Adjustable Ring Thimble
Made from brass, this thimble is ideal for working with thick materials and can be adjusted to suit any finger size. RRP £3.10 (CL610.)
Adjustable Ring Thimble with Plate
Designed for sewing running stitches using a long needle or Sashiko stitching. One size fits all. RRP £3.75 (CL611).
Soft leather for ultimate comfort and flexibility, this thimble has a protective dimpled metal disk at the inside pressure point of fingertip. RRP £12.99 (CL6014)
Double Sided Thimble
Made from soft leather, this thimble has a specially shaped, durable, dimpled disc at the very tip of the finger. (CL616) RRP £15.
Open Sided Thimble
Adjustable open-sided thimble that fits your finger comfortably. Dimpled for easy grip on needle points and with an open top to avoid perspiration. Especially suitable for people with long finger nails and anyone working on a project for long periods. Available in small (CL6017) and medium (CL6018) both RRP £11.50.
Also available are Protect and Grip Thimbles made from flexible, breathable rubber for a gentle fit and with a ridged tip to assert pressure when pushing the needle. They are 50-80% lighter than metal thimbles and available in three sizes; small, medium and large RRP from £8.12 (CL6025-27).
