Never struggle to thread this needle by Sench.
These general purpose hand sewing needles are open on the side of the eye for easy threading.
How to Use:
While holding the needle in your non dominant hand, you make a small loop with your thread held in your dominant hand. Place the needle inside the loop over the middle of the needle and slide the thread up the needle until it catches in the notch.
(if you don't catch the notch, rotate the needle slightly and try again). Once in the notch, pull the thread slightly downward and then upward. It will be firmly held in the notch and ready to use.
They are nickel-plated with golden eyes.
There are 12 needles per package and 3 needles of each length - 1.4", 1.5", 1.7" and 2"
They are a general purpose sewing needle - all of the needles are the same thickness.
