Bohin - Straw/Milliners Needles - size 3 -9

by Bohin

Milliners needles in size 3 - 9  from Bohin and made in France

The milliners needle is also often called a straw needle and it is fine and flexible

The long shank and round eye make them perfect for hand stitching as they carry the thread smoothly through the cloth.  They are favored by many quilters for English paper piecing and applique.  With their long length they are also the needle of choice for tacking, making pleats, bullion stitch embroidery and beading. 

The numbering corresponds to the size of each needle, No. 1 being the longest and thickest one, and No. 12 the shortest and thinnest one of the series.

Each pack contains:

1 milliners needle No. 3

4 milliners needles No. 5

6 milliners needles No. 7

4 milliners needles No. 9


They the perfect general-sewing needle choice for folk who prefer a needle with a bit more length.
