Soft Comfort Thimbles

What are these typically used for?

These tools protect your fingers as you do handwork.

What was your first impression of the soft thimble?

They looked comfortable, and I was intrigued by the air holes.

What was your experience with them like?

You simply fit a thimble onto the finger you most use to push the needle into your fabric. They come in three sizes; the large size fit me best. I loved using them, they’re so smooth and comfortable. The air holes allow for a really great fit.

How long did it take you to learn how to use it?


What did you like best?

I liked the feel of the Soft Comfort Thimbles. I don’t have long nails, so that wasn’t an issue for me either. The small, dimpled tips catch the needle and prevent it from slipping.

Why do you NEED it?

I love to embroider, so these are a must-have. Also, doing binding with these is a snap! It’s comfortable and I didn’t notice it was on after a while. My fingers were protected from accidental stress or needle jamming.

  • Anyone using a sewing needle by hand
  • Beginner, intermediate, and expert quilters
  • Embroiderers, paper-piecers, hand crafters
