Enjoy weaving with our handcrafted hardwood tapestry needles. Each needle displays beautiful wood grain and is sanded silky smooth to glide effortlessly through your weaving warp. These needles are great for weaving shorter lengths of yarn and for adding detailed visual effects to your piece.
Each needle measures approximately 6 1/2" long by 1/2" as the top width, and has two holes at the tip for securing your warp fiber.
Coated in an all-natural oil and beeswax finish for a soft feel and natural look.
About the wood used to make our weaving tools...
The wood used to make this product was harvested either on our family farm or a private woodlot within a 50 mile radius. We primarily harvest trees during the winter, when the ground is frozen and there is lesser chance of damage to the forest floor. This, too, is the time all our little critter friends are hidden away in their winters haven.
Trees are selectively cut using the “worst-first” method, and gently drug out with the help of a logging cart and our team of Suffolk draft horses. Logs are then taken to the farm’s sawmill, milled into lumber, and put into a solar kiln to dry.
Once the lumber has reached the proper moisture content it is turned into beautiful, functional products for all to enjoy! We intentionally select out lumber with beautiful character in the grain, so each piece has a unique appeal.
