Felting Needles are the mail tools used for working with wool or other fibers. The 'handle' end is smooth with a bent edge for fitting into holders or punches. The tips are sharp and the blades have barbs that grip fibers. These nickel plated 38 gauge needles have a triangular blade and are considered a standard size for general purpose. This is a good choice for having on hand for any felting project. These needles will fit all needle holders and punches. This is a package of 5 needles.
