Olympus sashiko needles - 2 needles - Short and Long

$3.50


This listing is for one pack of Olympus brand sashiko needles. Each pack contains one, 2 inch (58 mm) and one, 2.5 inch (65 mm) long needle.

Sashiko needles are strong, sharp and have a larger eye that allows for thicker, sashiko thread. These Olympus brand needles are thicker than other sashiko needles making them perfect for beginners or those that have trouble holding thin needles due to arthritis or neuropathy.

The long needle is 2.5 inches (65 mm) long and is perfect for creating large or straight patterns.

The short needle is 2 inches (58 mm) long and is perfect for creating small or curved patterns.

Please note that this needle may not be suitable for quilting or projects with multiple layers of fabric. This is due to the thickness of the needle making it a little harder to pull through these areas of fabric. These needles are perfect for fabrics that have a looser weave, such as cotton, kasuri ikat and the cotton, "faux" shibori, canvas or noren, quilting panels that are offered in my shop here:

I was thrilled to received my whole package of SASHIKO supplies and cannot wait to get started on my Japanese embroidery journey. I picked the fabric patches, the yarn, the needles and leather thimble. I wish I had taken a picture of how they were wrapped so beautifully and enticingly but I was too excited to open it. All I could say was that it was delicious and wrapped in a way that was very Japanese if one knows anything about their way of wrapping gifts. It would make a great gift for someone who would like to try this embroidery style. I am so glad to have found this store. I lived in Japan and love anything Japanese. Thank you for your attention in wrapping it and getting it to me so quickly. I am very excited. The design and dye of the fabrics is incredible.


Fast ship! Great needles. Thank you!



Items arrived as described. I have repaired button holes on a couple heavyweight denim articles over 20oz with the thread and needle.
