Short needles with large eyes and sharp points. Once used for working with chenille yarn, these needles are ideal for sewing coarse and strong fabrics using thick threads or yarns and are also perfect for embroidery using ribbons or for tying quilts. The best carbon, hardened, tempered steel is used to maximise resistance to corrosion. The tapered and slightly conical points plus a polished body ensure the best penetration into fabrics. The needle eyes are smooth with no snags and protect the thread from damage.
