Pack of 6 milliners straw needles in sizes #8, #9, and #10. There are 2 of each size. These are extra long thin needles with a shaft that are the same thickness of the eye with a sharp tip. Tulip’s quilting needles have been polished lengthwise in a way that creates tiny, invisible grooves. This gives the sewist a better grip on the small needles while hand sewing.
What sets Tulip needles apart is their smoothness, flexibility, and strength. The Hiroshima-made needles are polished lengthwise so that they glide through fabrics with ease. This smooth fabric piercing is also made possible by the needles’ points, which have undergone special high-density abrasive polishing treatment for sharpness. Last but not least, the needles have just the right amount of flexibility so they are resistant to bending or breaking.
