These assorted long sashiko needles contain no nickel and are easy on sensitive skin. They are the only hypoallergenic sashiko needles I have found so far.
This package contains needles in three different sizes, all designed with large eyes and 1 mm thick shafts to accommodate any size of sashiko thread. You can “load” many running stitches onto each needle before pulling the thread through. Sizes included:
- 5.4 cm/ 2.1 in
- 6 cm/ 2.4 in
- 6.67 cm/ 2.6 in
Includes an aluminum needle threader. Packages of assorted sashiko needles also available. For easier stitching, pair with a palm thimble.
