This needle holder and handle combo is the perfect tool for all your felting needs! The six-compartment needle holder lets you store up to seven needles, while the single handle is perfect for detail work.
Dressmaking needles come in a wide range of sizes, from thin to thick. The size of the needle you use will depend on the fabric you're sewing. For example, 70/10 needles are made to sew fine, lightweight fabrics like chiffon, satin, and organza. These are ideal for formal wear. 80/12 needles are appropriate to sew lightweight fabrics like lawn, faille, and georgette. If you're unsure what size needle to use, it's always best to err on the side of a smaller needle. You can always switch to a larger one if needed. In addition to dressmaking needles, there are also sewing machine needles and hand sewing needles.
The size number works the same way regardless of type - the lower the number, the thinner the needle shaft. So when you're choosing dressmaking needles, keep in mind the type of fabric you'll be working with and choose accordingly.
