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.

More about these needles:

  • Made in Japan
  • Brand: Olympus
  • Made from nickel-plated steel with gold-plated eye
  • Packaging*: curbside recyclable cardboard and paper strip, compostable cotton strip

*They are sent from the manufacturer in plastic sleeves, but we remove and recycle these prior to sending them to customers.
