This two-piece package of affordable sashiko needles is perfect for beginners. Of all the entry-level needles we tested, these are the sharpest and smoothest when used on the loosely woven cottons typically called for in sashiko embroidery. Looking for the top-of-the-line sashiko needles? Those are here.
This package contains needles in two different sizes, to make stitching any pattern comfortable:
- Short: 4.9 cm/1.8 in, for designs with curves or turns
- Long: 6.5 cm/2.6 in, for designs with straight lines
Sashiko needles have large eyes and wider shafts to help thicker threads move through the fabric.
