Crewel needles made of hardened steel are especially suitable for fine embroidery and sewing. The needles have the typical tapered and slim tip shape of a hand sewing needle and have a relatively large eye, which makes threading generally easier to do by hand. The smooth and non-porous coated surface ensures that the needle slips easily through the fabric. The range of crewel needles includes size numbers 3 to 9 and thereby offers the right needle for every requirement when embroidering. Prym also has two sorted sets of special embroidery needles in size numbers 3-9 and 5-10. All packs contain 16 needles.
