MEASURING FOR A THIMBLE
There are several ways you can measure your finger to order the right size thimble to fit you just right. The thimble sizes are based on US ring sizes.
Measure the finger at the base of the nail on the finger that you want to wear the thimble. For taller thimbles, measure between the base of the nail and your first knuckle.
To use our plastic ring sizer put the tapered end into the “box” then pull to make a circle. Slide it onto your finger to the base of your nail. If the thimble is tall, place the circle closer to your first knuckle. Read the number at the point of the arrow for whole, and 1⁄2 sizes spaces. The sizer should slide on and fit snugly enough to avoid falling off.
A metal jeweler’s ring sizer will work, as well. Stop by a jewelry store and ask them to size your finger for the thimble.
