Bookbinding needle set

Image of Bookbinding needle set

These three needle styles are seriously reliable, strong and specially made in the U.K. for our trade. Strong shaft and polished eyes to reduce wear on linen thread. The set includes:

3 heavy weight needles, 69mm - for long stitch and heavier thread.
3 light weight needles - 62 mm - for normal bindings, text weight paper and thread such as 25/3+ gauge.
1 essential flat bodkin - for cords, tapes and ribbons

NOTE: Heard that these needles are also favoured by milliners, basket weavers and sailmakers. Cool.
