Needles Bodkin Flat Double Eye/Ribbon Needle - $2.50 in USA FREE Shipping 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. There are 4 problems with this needle when doing Swedish weaving. It is uncomfortable to hold due to sharp edges, the eye may break, and it is too wide for picking up floats after 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. Two needles per package. Happy weaving!
