Tulip beading needles are manufactured in Japan, in Hiroshima a city famous for needle production. The needles have a shaft which is the same thickness as the eye and sharp tip to easily pierce fabric. The elongated eye of the needle is designed to accommodate thicker thread or strands of floss. The eye is easy to thread and polished thoroughly to prevent snagging. The needles are strong and have a durable body with just the right amount of flexibility which are resistent to bending or breaking. Needles are nickel-plated making them glide effortlessly through the fabric. Milliners needles come in 6 sizes and are ideal for embroidery with Perle cotton, wool and ribbon.
