Jen Kingwell herself uses this needle to hand stitch with. When asked why, she indicated that Size 11 is the longest and finest, which helps regulate her stitches. She also remarked that it's not thick at one end like other needles. This assists with glide, allowing you to get more running stitches on the needle. These needles are carefully crafted from high quality steel. They feature double punched eyes and refined shafts that end in a perfect point, making them ideal for embroidery. This pack includes 10 needles.
