Who can still darn today... hm, more textile*innen than one would think so. And besides... with a darning needle you can not only darn!
Certain strengths are the complement to embroidery needles, which have the thickest version in strength 1. But thicker yarns also like to be used - so: here with the darning needle. It also works wonderfully with large bullion knots, sling stitch bows and drizzles. The long versions also help when working out woven stitches and trellis versions.
The needles have a straight shape, a pointed tip and an elongated eye. They have a constant thickness between the eye and the tip. Their field of application is mainly for working on a canvas fabric. They prepare a hole in the fabric that corresponds exactly to the thickness of the working thread and thus helps it to fit perfectly.
On countable embroidery grounds they are mainly used for borders.
