These straight sewing needles are of the finest quality steel, and imported from England. 

Some helpful hints about the needles:

- Darners have a long eye.

- Bookbinders have a rounder eye which is polished to reduce wear on the sewing thread.

- Beading needles have a narrow eye

- Gauge the needle eye opening. The larger the gauge, the finer the eye of the needle.
