    Types of Needles Used in Hand Embroidery

    The type of needle you choose for your embroidery project depends on what type of embroidery you’re doing, but for those who embroider a lot, there are five categories of needles that you should have on hand.

    Here’s my list of five necessary types of hand embroidery needles and what they’re used for.

    1. Crewel Needles

    Crewel needles are also called “embroidery” needles.


    Hand Embroidery Needles: How to Choose & Use Them


    Crewel needles have a medium-long eye, a shaft slightly thinner than the eye (the eye bulges slightly at the top of the shaft), and a sharp tip.

    They’re used for general surface embroidery, crewel work, goldwork, whitework, and practically any embroidery technique that requires a sharp needle.

    Their sharp tip makes them perfect for piercing tightly woven ground fabric and their slightly longer eye accommodates embroidery threads of various weights.

    Crewel needles come in sizes 1-12, with 1 being the largest and 12 being the finest.

    For beginners who aren’t used to selecting needles to fit their thread, purchasing a variety pack is a good idea. Variety packs commonly include sizes 3-9 or 1-5. Both packs are good to have on hand.
