This set of high-quality Tulip needles consists of 4 blunt-tipped tapestry needles in needle size no. 13, 14, 15 and 16.
These needles have an elongated, gold-coloured eye, making it very easy for the thread to pass through them. The blunt point makes these needles ideal for embroidering on embroidery (canvas) fabrics.
The tip easily pierces through the tissue threads. For tapestry work, we recommend choosing a needle that matches the canvas fabric: the needle should be thick enough to allow the thread to pass through the eye and thin enough to pass through the canvas fabric. For tapestry needles, this rule applies: the thicker the needle, the lower the number.
These needles are of course also great for weaving in ends of your knitting or crocheting work or for sewing various parts together. They are made from smoothly polished steel. This assortment includes needle sizes no. 13 (2.40mm thickness x 70mm length), no. 14 (2.10mm thickness x 65mm length), no. 15 (1.81mm thickness x 60mm length) and no. 16 (1.60mm thickness x 60mm length). The handy, blue pouch in which the needles can be stored has a magnet that makes it easy to pick up needles.
