A pack of 16 Prym Embroidery Needles - size 7 (38mm).
Embroidery and Crewel needles have a wider eye than some sewing needles, making them easier to thread by hand. They're durable, and are still nicely sharp - making them easy to pass through the fabric.
Paraffle Note: These size 7 needles are my 'go-to' needles for hand embroidery - the perfect size for stitching with the 2 strands of thread that I normally use; but also able to accommodate all 6 skeins of a thread (at a push!), or just 1, if you're altering the number of threads you work with. They're sturdy, and come in a handy packet that re-seals by tucking in an edge - to minimise the inevitable needle spillages!
