"To achieve the best result, the most important thing about embroidery is the combination of the correct materials and tools" - Phillipa Turnbull
Our crewel embroidery needles are made exclusively for us. The eye is large and polished for ease of threading. The needle itself is wide so that the wool may pass through the linen cleanly and without shredding. The sharp point of the needle ensures a clean entry through the heavy linen twill.
Available in two sizes:
- The smaller, gold-plated needle is for use with single thread.
- The larger, polished-nickel ‘silver’ needle is for use with double thread.
Tip: Remember to keep your needle at 90 degrees at all times when passing it through the linen.
