Medieval Thimble

Medieval Thimble

$ 6.99

In the Middle Ages a metal thimble was known as a 'thymel'. This reproduction of a ring-type thymel would have been used for sewing coarser materials where the side of the finger was used for pushing the needle through, rather than the finger-tip.

This reproduction medieval thimble is made from antique bronze plated lead-free pewter. It is supplied in a clear box with information card.
