Curved Metal Packing Needle
I’ve had a number of requests for the metal needles that were available in the Purl & Loop shop. I acquired a bundle of them with the Purl & Loop stock. I don’t personally use these needles, but they are handy for weaving with ribbon and novelty yarns, and in those last few rows at the end of your swatch.
These 6" metal packing weaving needles by John James are convenient to weave in and out of some tight spaces. The eye can easily accommodate a 3/8" wide ribbon or piece of fabric.
Needle measures 6’’ long with 1/8’’ eye.
1/8’' tapered point starts 4’’ from the end of the needle.
- Just under 1/2 ounce.
The video shows how to use this needle. Unlike a straight needle, it requires shifting the needle from side to side to pick up the threads. The video has no audio.
