A fabulous weaving needle set containing 3 different types of needles: a flat sewing needle (bodkin), a flat cranked raffia sewing needle (bent-tip bodkin), plus a cranked weaving needle. A cranked needle is sometimes also called a turned-up needle or bent-tip needle. Bodkins are 2.75″ long, weaving needle is 5″ long.
The bodkins can be used for naalbinding, as well!
Some folks prefer the bent-tip 5″ needle for pin loom weaving, and it is great for finishing tapestry weavings when you are near the end and have very little working space.
For a straight weaving needle, without a bent tip, see 5 Inch Weaving Needle.
