Our favourite brand of Sashiko needles by far!
Tulip needles are made in Hiroshima, Japan to exacting standards. Packaged elegantly in a little corked vial inside a box.
Designed with a big needle eye to accommodate Sashiko thread where you can only pick up one or two stitches at a time, and are considered more versatile than the Long needles (which are generally used for stitching straight patterns).
Vial contains 6pcs Sashiko needles in three sizes:
2 x 0.84mm x 45.5mm
2 x 0.91mm x 42.9mm
2 x 0.84mm x 36.4mm
High quality - strong and durable body with just the right amount of flexibility which is resistant to bending or breaking. Polished needles allows for smooth piecing and glides through fabric with ease.
