Milliners sewing needles are sometimes referred to as Straw needles and are traditionally used in hat making, hence they are called Straw because in the past so many hats were made out of straw.
These needles are long with round eyes and ideal when used in the art of pleating and creating fancy decorative stitching, commonly known as smocking. The length of the Milliners needle makes it an ideal needle to use in Bullion work and especially for creating Bullion Knots.
