Jeana Kimball Foxglove Cottage straw needles

Jeana Kimball Foxglove Cottage straw needles size 11These are the straw needles we have decided to put in place of the lovely Jean Lyle needles we used to carry.

They come in a nice little case, there are 16 needles in the case. These are really skinny straw needles in size 11, from Jeana Kimball’s Foxglove Cottage.

They are Jeana’s favorite needle, and make needle-turn applique easy and smooth. Straw needles are also useful for basting, hand piecing and quilting. The narrow shank of this fine needle glides easily through several fabric layers without hesitation.
