Bohin Sharps Needles.
These are my needles of choice, they are wonderful to use and seem to last forever! Manufactured in France using the same manufacturing methods since 1833, these are excellent quality nickel plated steel needles. They have a sturdy shaft, sharp tip, large eye and are smooth as butter.
Sharps needles have a short shaft which reduces stress on the hands and a rounded eye ideal for 1-2 strands of embroidery cotton, silk or broder.
I have fully researched and tested most of the brands on the market from various parts of the world and these are the ones I can recommend.
Needle Usage: Replace your needles often or when they become tarnished.
