1. thimble
Wikipedia definition
2. ThimbleA thimble is a small hard pitted cup worn for protection on the finger that pushes the needle in sewing. Usually, thimbles with a closed top are used by dressmakers but special thimbles with an opening at the end are used by tailors as this allows them to manipulate the cloth more easily. The Old English word þȳmel, the ancestor of thimble, is derived from Old English þūma, the ancestor of our word thumb. The earliest known thimble was Roman and was found at Pompeii.
