Hand Sewing Needle #18 by W. Smith & Son is a high quality sailmaker’s hand-sewing needle. Forged in England from cast steel, this hand-sewing needle has a triangular point and sharp edges to cut through the fabric. The sharpness makes it easy to pass through heavier fabric assemblies. A long eye makes threading easier. Sailmakers use triangular shaped needles to open larger holes in the fabric to cut down on chafe problems when a long length of twine is repeatedly pulled through.

Needle size increases as the number decreases. The #16 needle is good for most work, but as a general rule use larger needles for sewing through many layers of fabric and smaller needles for seam work. Simply use the needle that yields the smallest hole without undue trouble.

Needle length: 2-7/16 inches
