Perfect for bead embroidery - small enough to fit the beads - stiff enough to go through fabric without taking on a roller-coaster shape. Sharp, and a little shorter than a beading needle. Hurts more too when you stab yourself. Four needles come in a protective glass-like vial. Premium Tulip brand beading needles. These are currently my bead embroidery needle of choice.
Made in Japan. 0.41mm x 37mm By the pack of 4.
