Clover Protect and Grip Thimble
Protect and Grip Thimbles offer the perfect combination of soft, elastic material with the safety of a metal thimble cap. The scallop design brings breathability, keeping your finger cool. Its elasticity helps the thimble form naturally to your fingertip for a light and secure fit. The ridged and dimpled metal cap holds the needle tip in place and pushes needles in safely.
Meg's verdict: This is a terrific thimble, the best I've ever used. It doesn't fall off as my finger changes size at different times of the day. It feels quite flexible on my finger whilst still giving me a slip-stop metal tip with which to push the needle. I completely forget that I'm wearing it, it's so comfortable. Because the casing is soft and flexible, I get a very good rocking motion as I sew along a seam, with the fabric of the thimble moving with my finger. I think this is an excellent product for anyone with any swelling in their finger joints because it shapes to your finger. To choose the correct size, get a piece of card and cut a small hole in it. Keep widening the hole until your finger tip fits through the hole. Measure that hole and compare it to the guide below.
