These are essential for stitchers. Cuts way down on finger pain. Every winter my right thumb used to split and that’s SO painful. Since using these grippers it hasn’t once.
They seem nice but sizing is an issue. Runs small, difficult to say from the package or description what size to pick. I normally wear small size gloves so purchased a small (fingers) and medium(thumb), there was a reviewer that recommended that. The small I received is for tiny skinny fingers. M and L would have work best but too late now.
Thank you for your feedback Arlene. As mentioned in the product description, since the Little House thimbles are made in Japan, the sizing runs smaller than standard American sizing, which is why we compare the Small size as more similar to a Child size rather than a standard American size Small. It is difficult to convey sizing for items like these through an online platform and we try our best to describe sizing as accurately as possible, but understand that it can still be difficult. Sorry that these did not work out for you.
These little needle grippers are perfect and make it easy when doing sashiko stitching. I use my palm, leather thimble to push the needle through stitches and this little finger tip gripper to pull the needle through the stitches. So much easier on my hand and my project!!
I was hesitant at first because no thimble has worked well for me and I thought that the material would be too thin or that the needle would go through but I'm pleased with how easy is yo work with and very sturdy yet comfortable
