My favorite brand of embroidery needle. This variety pack has sizes 5-10 or 3-9. With this variety I can use one to four strands of floss and have the correct needle on hand for the amount of strands I am using. Embroidery needles are especially designed for changing the amount of floss. They have longer eyes to let the strands lay flat beside each other and they are tapered to let the needle gently push through the fabric allowing all the bulk at the end to gently push through.
