Cohana Japan hand sewing needle set - Thick or Thin cloth


This listing is for one pack of Cohana Japan hand sewing needles. There are two collections available: Thin or Thick cloth. Each pack contains 8 needles total. Please select the collection that you wish to purchase using the pull down menu.

The history of these needles extends over 430 years. Their distinctive feature is that the needles are polished vertically to reduce friction. This helps to reduce hand fatigue. The eyes of the needle are smooth and slightly elongated and the tip is sharpened with a gradual slope. These needles do have small eyes that allow them to pass easily through the fabric.

This set comes in a capped paper tube. The cap has a beautiful tassel created with Kanagawa silk and gold thread.
