Jeana Kimball's Foxglove Cottage - Embroidery/Redwork Needles - size 9
Embroidery/Redwork needles in size 9 from Jeana Kimball of Foxglove Cottage are made in England and are of the highest quality.
To meet the specialized needs of decorative stitching, the embroidery/redwork needle is longer than Sharps, but shorter than Utility Quilting needles. Its eye is tapered to accommodate thicker or multiple strands of thread when flattened between the fingers, while also providing a smooth stitching experience.
This plastic tube contains 16 needles
These are Wendy's go-to needle when hand quilting using big stitches and perle 8 thread, because the slightly shorter length gives greater maneuverability.
The size 9 embroidery/redwork needles are slightly smaller than the size 8
