This needle is identical to a Sharp with a long eye for easier threading and fine embroidery. These needles are called for in Joy's Waldorf Dolls patterns and doll making kits for embroidering the eyes and mouth, sewing body parts together, attaching the doll wigs and other general sewing.
Note: This size needle is essential for embroidering the eyes and mouth of your Waldorf doll. Switch your floss to this needle once you've brought it from the back of the head to the front of the face with the thicker and longer doll needle. Embroidering the features with this needle as opposed to the fatter doll needle reduces the risk of making large holes or runs in the cotton knit jersey face.
A good needle to use with our Sheep's Silk Wool Embroidery Thread.
Not recommended for embroidering our wool felt. Instead use the Gold Eye Felt Sewing Needles.
16 per package.
