Straw needles in size 9 from Jeana Kimball of Foxglove Cottage are made in England and are of the highest quality.
The straw needle is also often called a milliners needle.
Straws ares fine and flexible. The long shank and small eye make them perfect for hand stitching as they carry the thread smoothly through the cloth. They are favoured by many quilters for English Paper piecing and applique. They are also the needle of choice for bullion stitch embroidery and beading.
This plastic tube contains 16 needles
The size 9 straw needle is larger than the size 11 straw needle. Straws are longer than Sharps needles so they are a great choice who prefer a longer shank when stitching
