John James - Straw/Milliners Needles - size 10
Milliners needles in size 10 from John James and made in England
Milliner's sewing needles are sometimes referred to as Straw needles and are traditionally used in hat making, hence they are called Straw because in the past so many hats were made out of straw.
These needles are long with round eyes and ideal when used in the art of pleating and creating fancy decorative stitching, commonly known as smocking. The length of the Milliners needle makes it an ideal needle to use for English Paper Piecing, and especially for creating Bullion Knots.
Each pack contains 16 needles
They are the perfect general-sewing needle choice for folk who prefer a needle with a bit more length.
