Clover Japan set of 2 leather ring thimbles for hand sewing

Sorry, this item has sold.

This listing is for a set of 2 Clover brand leather ring thimbles. Both thimbles are the same size but feature different colored plastic backers.

These thimbles are perfect for use with shorter sashiko needle. They are worn on the middle finger, between the second and third joint of the finger, and the needle is held and directed by the pointer finger and thumb. This prevents strain on the hand. These thimbles are also perfect for anyone that is hand-sewing or mending heavyweight or thick fabrics or hand quilting.

The thimbles are held in a circular shape via a string. This string is not elastic so these thimbles are not as adjustable as other thimbles. The string could be replaced with a longer string if needed. I personally prefer this thimble over the metal, adjustable ring thimble (also by Clover Japan). I have very small hands so I find that these leather thimbles fit me better. The metal one is a little more bulky due to the adjustments that I need to make to make it fit my finger. If you have larger hands I do recommend the metal, adjustable ring thimble however these leather thimbles will fit any finger IF you replace the string holding the leather together with a longer length of string or elastic thread. The indents in the leather prevent the needle from slipping.

This item is made in Japan by Clover.
This item is made out of leather and polyethylene

Already getting use out of these great little thimbles. So happy I found them, and that they got here so quickly. Thanks!

Works very well for how I sew. It was a bit to big for me but it was very easy for me to adjust it to fit better

I love these!! I hold my needle in a way where it hits the middle joint of my ring finger so regular thimbles don’t work for me and the metal ring thimbles I’ve always found awkward. I just had to replace the string so that it fit me better and it works perfectly!

Arrived quickly, and was as described!

Wow! Amazing quality items to include a yard of fabric and various thimbles. The shipping was faster than I had expected. Thank you!
