Tulip sashiko Hiroshima needles - Big eye Straight Thick size - 4 needles


This listing is for one "Sashiko Needles - Big Eye Straight Thick Size" pack of Tulip brand sashiko needles. The pack contains 4 needles.

The Tulip company, located in Hiroshima, Japan, was founded in 1948 and began making hand-sewing needles in 1950. They are known for their high-quality needles.

These needles have a larger needle eye, with a smooth surface both inside and out. With just the right amount of flexibility, they are resistant to bending or breaking. Each needle has undergone a special high-density abrasive polishing treatment to make their point sharp. Their smooth piecing allows them to be easily pulled through the fabric. This means that you can stitch for hours with less fatigue.

You will receive the following needles in this pack:

4 needles that are 2 inches (51.5 mm) long x .91 mm thick

This is the "thick" size and it is recommended for heavier weight fabrics or when stitching through several layers of fabrics. The length is long enough to use for straight runs but also short enough to use when creating curves or short runs.

The last photo shows one of the big eye needles (top) compared to 2 needles from the Tulip needle "Assorted long" pack (2nd and 3rd needle from top) and 2 needles from the Tulip needle "Assorted short" pack (bottom 2 needles). The assorted packs offer needles with different sized eyes while this "big eye" pack offers 4 needles of the same size with the same large eye.

These needles are made in Japan. They are packaged in a boxed, plastic tube with a cork stopper. These needles will ship in a padded, envelope mailer.
