Long Sashiko Needles
These fine quality Japanese needles are a little different to a classic darning needle.
Sashiko needles have a sharper point to pierce through thicker fabrics e.g. denim, and a larger eye to accomodate thicker thread such as Sashiko thread.
They also tend to be slightly longer and are less likely to bend, which is why I often choose one when using a Speedweve loom.
Each pack contains three Sashiko needles of different lengths:
These longer needles are ideal for long, straight lines of stitching on denim, as well as weaving when using with a 10, 14 or 21-hook darning loom.
Made in Japan for Clover.
The needles come packaged on a piece of cardstock and a plastic sleeve supplied by the manufacturer.
