Triangular needles have downward facing barbs along each their 3 edges. If you're not sure what size to get then we recommend the 36 gauge as being a good general use size. The workhorse needle of the range.
The higher the number the finer the needle.


These needles allow the pre-felting process to take place without the need for soap and water, as well as being used to create 3D forms. To do this they have a series of barbs along the working edge that grab the fibres and move them around. They are produced in different thickness gauges; the larger the needle gauge the finer the needle

Whilst all of the needles will tolerate a small amount of bending, too much and they will break.  As such a straight in and-and-out action will ensure a long life for the needle. A well used needle will wear out the barbs before it breaks.

These needles will fit into all of the needle felting tools we stock.

All our needles are high quality European manufacture, not low quality far eastern made.

Safety
These needles, like all sharp tools, need treating with care. They are not suitable for use by children without close supervision. All our needles are packed in robust slide lock boxes. Please keep them in these boxes when not in use.
