DMC Tapestry Needles are 1 ¾” – 2” long and made of premium grade nickel plated steel. DMC Tapestry Needles have an elongated eye for easy threading and a blunt point that glides smoothly through the holes in your fabric. The number of the tapestry needle corresponds to the size of the eye and the thickness of the needle. The higher the number of the needle, the smaller the eye and thinner the needle is. Tapestry Needles are used for cross stitch and needlepoint projects. 6 needles per package.
