Hand Sewing Needle Sets
The needle is a valuable tool for hand sewing, and these lovely tools from Cohana set a high bar!
The history of these needles extends over 430 years. Their distinctive feature is that
the uncoated needles are polished vertically to reduce friction with the fabric. This additional step creates a delicate needle that is very comfortable for stitching.
The eye of the needle is smooth and slightly elongated and the tip is sharpened with a gradual slope.
This set comes in a capped paper tube tasseled with Kanagawa silk and gold thread in two sizes for:
Thick Cloth -- for stitching fabrics such as denim and canvas. The set contains 8 needles -- 2 or 3 each in 3 sizes.
Thin to Mid-Weight Cloth -- For sewing fabrics such as light cotton and silk crepe. The set contains 8 needles -- 2 each of 4 needle sizes.
