Bohin Size 28 Tapestry Needles (6)
These are my go-to needles -- they're smooth, and just the right length -- not too short, not too long. They are nickel-plated steel and French. These work great on finer counts of linen like 36, 40 and higher or 18 or finer in Aida. I use these for silk gauze, too. They're awesome!!!
