Thimble Sizing

We have just one size remaining. This thimble measure 5/8 inch tall; and it tapers in a bit at the top. Since most thumbs are not round, you can squeeze your thimble a bit to make it slightly oval, rather than being perfectly round, for a better fit. Once you have squeezed it, you may not return it.

Here is what the thimble measures at the base, its widest point:

  • Size 12 -- 2-5/16 inch

Measure thumbTo see if this thimble will fit you, take a flexible (dressmakers) measuring tape and wrap it around your thumb (or desired finger) between the base of the nail and the first knuckle. Fit it snuggly and take that measurement. This will give you a thimble that fits comfortably.Size 11 thimble

The picture to the right shows how a thimble should fit. It provides full coverage from the end of the thumb and over the entire pad.

The picture below shows a thimble that is a bit too large. This one provides plenty of protection to the pad of my thumb, but I tend to push the needle from high on my thumb and this size would not provide me the right protection. But, some people prefer this fit. Size 13 thimble

Exchanges: If, once you have tried the thimble, you determine the size is not right, return the thimble you purchased in the original thimble packaging, inside a postage-paid padded envelope, for a refund. All returns must be handled within 45 days of the original order. No thimble that has been altered can be returned.

E-mail us, Info@prqc.com, if you have questions.
