Tulip Company

Milliners Needles / Straws

Tulip's superior quality milliners needles, also called straws, are longer than appliqué needles. Though originally designed for the hat-making industry they are sometimes used for appliqué along with basting, binding, embroidery and general hand-sewing. The perfect needle for making french knots, boullion and other multiple-wrap embroidery stitches, the body (eye and shaft) is uniform throughout, ending with a sharp point to easily pierce fabric. The eye of the needle is designed for easy threading and is polished thoroughly to prevent snagging. The needles are finished with superior polish, lengthwise, making them glide effortlessly through the fabric. Tulip needles embody the marriage of precision technology with 65 years of traditional needle production.

These needles are nickel-free for sewists concerned with allergies.
