3" long needles with long eyes for doll making, soft sculpture, upholstery and other crafts. We recommend this needle for sewing the eyes and mouth on small dolls (6" and 8"). Also, useful for wig attachment. Easy to thread, sharp, and sturdy with clean eyes that will not fray thread. A needle this length is needed to go all the way through a small doll head so the knot is hidden at the back under the hair or hood.
Note this is a wider than usual needle and should be inserted only once or twice in the same spot or you will be left with a hole. For best results learn the technique described in a Joy's Waldorf Dolls pattern. In quilting, a great needle for getting through batting when tying quilts.
