Long Fine Darning Needle - Size No.1
This needle is perfect for repairs to light - medium weight woven fabrics like a silk dress, cotton shirt or linen trousers.
It has an elongated eye for stitching with slightly thicker thread e.g. 2-3 strands of embroidery floss, and a semi blunt point to avoid snags when weaving through fabric.
The longer length makes it easier to darn larger holes and create long straight lines of stitching.
Length of needle: 66mm / 2.6"
Length of eye: 4mm / 0.15"
Made in Normandy, France in the historic BOHIN factory.
Bohin needles have an exceptional polish for smooth glide through fabric and a fine point to minimize holes. The eye is polished with a unique process to minimize breaking thread and the needles have maximum strength with minimum bending.
