This LoRan Sashiko gold eye needles set includes hand needles for use in Sashiko stitching, which is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching from Japan used for beauty and function. Needles have long eyes for easy threading. A smooth even shaft makes uniform holes and aids in even stitching. Short needles are used for stitching curves and long needles are used for straight stitching. Traditionally blue cloth and white thread are used for Sashiko stitching, but the art of Sashiko is used today to embellish fabrics using a variety of colored threads. Package contains 4 short needles and 6 long needles in a variety of sizes.
