Tulip Hiroshima Piecing needles feature a sharp needle point with good piercing characteristics and a very strong needle body, ideal for hand piecing. Similar to a 'Sharps' needle, it is the thickest when comparing to Silk, Appliqué, Milliners and Sewing ranges (the #7 Sewing needle is thicker). It works well for hand sewers with a strong grip and will accommodate 50wt thread and finer. The size #8 needle is a touch longer than size #9. Size changes in length only. Needles are made of steel, and feature the unique 'Superior Polished Finish'.
Tulip Hiroshima hand sewing needles are of the finest quality, made to exacting standards which include more than 30 different manufacturing processes to ensure each needle is safe and finished to supreme excellence. Tulip produce high-quality needles by blending traditional techniques passed down from generations with cutting-edge technologies. Needles feature a strong and smooth polished body made of steel which glide through fabrics easily, with a beautifully made needle eye that prevents snagging and facilitates easier threading.
