Milliners, or Straw, needles are used when making knotted stitches. These needles have an eye shape that does not bulge beyond the size of the body, making for a smooth pull through knots.
These are the finest needles you will find on the market today. Special care is taken to ensure the quality and sharpness of each needle. Excellent for anyone who appreciates high quality tools. Makes a thoughtful gift, too. 8 needles per tube.
From Tulip's website: "Our needles are made through a process consisting of over 30 steps, using traditional needle-making techniques that have been handed down through generations of skilled Tulip needle craftsmen, each of whom has an almost stubborn obsession with quality."
Each tube contains 8 needles, all size 3.
