    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.
