Needles with large eyes and rounded points. Due to the rounded points, tapestry needles slip between the fibres without causing any damage to the threads of the fabric. Tapestry needles are used with wool or thick cotton for canvas embroidery or on coarse open weave fabrics. The best carbon, hardened, tempered steel is used to maximise resistance to corrosion. The tapered and slightly conical points plus a polished body ensure the best penetration into fabrics. The needle eyes are smooth with no snags and protect the thread from damage.
