Ballpoint Needle

ΤιμήΑπό 3,00£

Ballpoint needles are simply awesome when it comes to repairing knitted fabrics - these needles feature a special mini ball tip that helps you darn knitwear with minimal effort.


The rounded point helps you easily locate the spaces between individual knit stitches. In contrast using a sharp needle can easily damage your knitwear further by catching and splitting the yarn leading to pulled stitches.


Suitable for:

  • darning, general repairs or embroidery on knitted fabrics e.g wool jumper or cashmere cardigan.
  • use with fine yarn such as laceweight, 2-ply & 4-ply.


Choose from five sizes:

  • 40mm / 1.57"
  • 48mm / 1.89"
  • 55mm / 2.17"
  • 76mm / 3"
  • 100mm / 4" (heavy gauge)


40mm & 48mm are best for use with single ply yarns on very

fine knitwear.

55 & 76mm are best for use with laceweight yarns on fine knitwear.

100mm is best for use with slightly thicker yarns on medium weight knitwear.


Inidivdual needles are supplied in a compostable glassine bag sealed with a paper sticker.


Optional Extra: If you'd like these needles to be sent to you packaged in a beautiful glass tube with authentic cork stopper, simply add a glass test tube to your basket using the drop down menu provided. It is great way to safely store them all together and protect them from getting lost or damaged.


*Please be aware the ballpoint needles are not suitable for use on woven fabrics e.g. cotton, denim, linen etc.
