Needles: Straw/Milliners Size 3-9





The name of John James is still recognised by needle crafters around the globe and is renowned for quality and reliability.


Straw / milliners needle – a long sharp needle with a small eye.  (The eye is no wider than the shaft)

This is the only needle to use for Bullion knots – the wraps slip off the needle easily as the eye is not too wide.

In this mixed pack of  size 3/9 needles, the largest is a size 3, which is useful for working with perlé thread.

The finest size 9 needle is good for beading – stronger than a beading needle and fine enough to fit through the smallest bead.
