The making of fabric guards

Thumbsie® finger and thumb guards are mainly made of 100% cotton both on the outside and inside fabric. The fabric is deliberately not washed before it is sewn into a guard. Thumbsie® finger and thumb guards are made in a smoke and pet free environment. We suggest that you wash your guards before wearing them, especially if the child has any allergies.


We advise that a child under the age of 36 months is not left unsupervised wearing a Thumbsie® fabric guard. Children are the responsibility of the parent or carer. If the fabric guard starts to fray after use its probably time to get a new so that small pieces of fabric are not coming away.
