These are longer, traditional needles from Japan used in making Sashiko embroidery.  Sashiko is a traditional Japanese stitching technique that was born in the Northern area of Japan hundreds of years ago.  The ladies of farm families stitched with cotton thread in order to retain heat well and to strengthen cotton/linen fabric.  This package contains two Sashiko needles: 1- 15/16in and 2-5/8in.  Imported.
