Skin Thimble™ - Finger Face Gripper™ – Metal shield (Bone)
- One size fits all.
This patented thimble combines the features of our popular ST353 that contains a dimpled stainless steel metal shield and our ST322 that contains a Finger Face Gripper™. The thimble slips onto your finger and is held in place by our Skin Thimble™ elastic no-slip support system.
This is a super general-purpose sewing thimble because it will allow you to push a needle through any fabric that your thumb or finger is capable of penetrating with a needle. The metal shield cannot be penetrated by manual force. The dimpled, stainless steel metal shield prevents needle slippage when you push a needle through fabric.
A soft-rubber-gripping-pad, (25 to 35 durometer), is attached to the outer surface of the thimble. The soft-rubber-gripping-pad provides enhanced gripping-traction against anything it touches similar to your finger when it is damp. The Finger Face Gripper’s™ soft-rubber-gripping-pad also provides excellent gripping-traction against a needle when the needle is placed between the Finger Face Gripper™ and your thumb, to form a Gripper™-to-thumb-gripping-clamp. Enhanced gripping-traction occurs when you place a needle between a Skin Thimble™ Finger Face Gripper™ on your pushing finger and a Skin Thumble™ - Thumb Face Gripper™ on your thumb. The Gripper™-to-Gripper™-gripping-clamp provides enhanced gripping-traction when pulling a needle and thread though fabric of any weight. This product is ideal for the following tasks:
-The Skin Thimble™ - Finger Face Gripper™ – Metal shield is one of the most efficient hand-sewing thimbles on the market when sewing fabric of any weight.
