This is an ideal needle for stringing and making pilot holes in the felted wool balls. The flat portion of the tool separates the wool fibers rather than cutting or breaking them like a traditional pointed needle would. A generous needle eye accommodates heavy cording, jewelry findings or wire. With a simple rocking action, use pointed end of needle to pierce the ball. Firmly grip the ball and pull the needle thru with or without cording. For extra heavy cording, use a pair of needle-nose pliers to firmly grasp the needle and pull thru. 4" long 'Wing-Tip Crafting Needle' from HandBEHGFelts.
