    Bohin Sashiko Needles 8

    Bohin Tapestry, Chenille, and Sashiko needles are types of hand-sewing needles manufactured by Bohin, a well-known brand recognized for its high-quality sewing and needlecraft products. Each type of needle is designed for specific purposes:

    1. Tapestry Needles: Tapestry needles feature a blunt tip and a large eye, making them ideal for hand-sewing projects using thicker threads or yarns, such as tapestry work, needlepoint, cross-stitching, and embroidery on closely woven fabrics or canvas. The blunt tip helps prevent the needle from splitting threads and allows for easy insertion into the fabric.

    2. Chenille Needles: Chenille needles have a sharp point and a large eye, similar to tapestry needles, but they are longer and thicker. They are commonly used for embroidery, crewelwork, and sewing with thicker yarns or multiple strands of embroidery floss. The sharp point enables the needle to pierce through multiple layers of fabric or heavy materials, while the large eye accommodates thicker threads.

    3. Sashiko Needles: Sashiko needles are traditionally used in the Japanese art of Sashiko stitching, a form of decorative reinforcement stitching or functional embroidery. These needles are long, straight, and have a sharp point, allowing for precise stitching through several layers of fabric. Sashiko needles are often used with thick, sturdy Sashiko thread to create intricate and decorative patterns on fabric.

    Bohin needles are known for their durability, smoothness, and precise craftsmanship, making them popular among sewists, quilters, and needleworkers worldwide. When choosing needles for your project, consider the fabric type, thread thickness, and the type of stitching you'll be doing to select the most suitable needle for the job.
