Straw and milliners needles are longer than a sharp/applique needle. Some quilters really like that extra length when turning under the seam allowance.
This Size 10 Straw Needle is the same length as a Size 11 in the same brand, but the shank is slightly thicker, which keeps it from bending while stitching and accommodates a larger eye, making it easier to thread than the Size 11. Appropriate for the majority of applique stitching, and recommended for beginners who are trying Straw needles for the first time.
16 needles per tube.
