sew’opedia: Sharps hand needle

5 Jan 2013 Ferado

Sharps are the most common needles used for hand sewing, and like the name suggests, these needles do have a sharp point. Sharps have a rounded eye that are just large enough for the thread and are medium in length.

Sharp needles come in size 1- 10, where 1 is the thickest and longest needle and 10 is the smallest.
