Different types of hand sewing needles

Needles for general use

These are the most common needles and will allow to sew practically everything. They have different grades of thickness, and lenght also varies proportionally with the thickness. That is, the thinner eedles are also shorter than the thicker ones.

Long sewing needles (Sharps)

These are long needles with a sharp point. They are used for all types of sewing. They have a round eye and variable length. Depending on their thickness, they are also used for basting, decorative stitching, etc. The smallest and thinnest are suitable for sewing sequins, or for detailed dressmaking.

Wool and embroidery needles.

Wool needles are thicker and have a large eye. There are various sizes and thickness levels. The thickness of the needle will depend on the thickness of the wool thread we use. They can also be used for darning. They can have a round tip or a sharp tip, depending on the use. These needles in their smaller formats can also be used for embroidery, in addition to other specific needles for embroidery.

Embroidery needles (Crewell)

They are long needles with a sharp tip that are used for embroidery on thick weave fabrics. They have an elongated eye to allow the use of more than one thread at a time.

Needles with tip (Chenille)

This type of needles have an elongated eye much larger than the one of regular embroidery needles. They are mostly used for embroidery with wool, although the smaller sizes can also be used for embroidery with threads. The thickness of the needle will depend on the thickness of yarn used. They are also used for ribbon embroidery.

Tapestry needles

They are exactly the same as the previous ones but their tip is rounded, and they are specially suitable for fabrics that have a regular weft with holes, like canvas or the fabrics used in counted stitch embroidery, like cross stitch or hardanger, for example. These needles are also used to join crochet or knitted pieces together.

Double Eye Needles (Double Eye Tapestry)

They are used for wool embroidery projects that require threading two different strands at the same time.

Other types of needles

Interlocking needles (Bodkins)

They are long, thick needles with a rounded tip. The ribbon or elastic cord is threaded into this special needle, which then goes through the drawstrings or waistbands and is pushed towards the other end.

Needles for dolls

These needles are special for sewing rag dolls by hand. Very useful for modeling the parts of the body, such as the features of the face, detail of the hands, etc. These needles are very long, so that they can cross a doll through and still be manageable. They are not very thick in proportion to the length, and they are very sharp. They usually appear in assortments of two or three units of various lengths.

Plastic needles

Plastic needles are large and do not have a very sharp point. They can be used to join knit or crochet pieces together, pass ribbons, or for children's first sewing projects.
