Needles Bodkin Flat Double Eye/Ribbon Needle - $2.00 FREE SHIPPING in USA with minimum $9.00 total purchase.
This double-eyed flat, punched metal needle is used by some for Swedish weaving on Monk's Cloth when learning the craft. It is a Ribbon Needle for ribbon work. The problems with this needle when doing Swedish weaving are four. It is uncomfortable to hold due to sharp edges, the eye may break, and it is too wide for picking up floats where prior rows have been stitched. Lastly, one can't poke it through the selvage. The #13 Tapestry Needle seems to be better overall for many Swedish weavers. This needle is 3 inches long and may be good for beginners. Two needles per package. Happy weaving!
