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.
