This chenille hand needles is made of premium grade nickel plated steel. They have a sharp-point and long-eye like an embroidery needle but run only in the upper size range like a tapestry needle. Slightly shorter than embroidery needles. Longer eye allows multiple strands of some threads to slip through more easily. They are good for fastening the ends of couched threads.
Large-eyed needles with sharp points for ribbon embroidery and crewel work
