Beautiful Bohin Straw Milliners Needles.
This is my personal favourite brand of beautiful FRENCH NEEDLES for using when doing all our Embroidery Grub Roses & Bullion Stitches. 💕
A mixed sized packet of Straw Milliners Needles -
Size 3-9 Packet.
TIP....The numbers in the haberdashery system are OPPOSITE to our counting system...
( ie The Smallest number in our counting system equals the largest needle in the packet etc. )
These are EXCELLENT QUALITY FRENCH NEEDLES.
*Not sure which number you've used,... simply line them all up so that the bottom tips of the needles all run in a line...at the bottom...
3 will be the LARGEST SIZE NEEDLE in this packet.
9 will be the SMALLEST SIZE NEEDLE in this packet.
...ie. OPPOSITE to our counting system)
*See the diagram above to see an explanation of the numbers/ sizes.
The definition of the Straw Milliners Needle is that they have a long fine shaft, making them the ideal needles for our Bullion Roses, EPP and Needleturn Applique.
** This packet of Needles is my preferred choice for doing all my Bullion/Grub Roses in Embroidery.
