These unique ergonomic cable needles are bendable! They also feature the Prym patented "hook" tips, which means, as you can see from the photos, that they have a little knob on the end to keep stitches from slipping off. They come in a set of 2. The tips are a US 6 so they will work for a wide range of projects. Total length straightened out is 8". Katherine's note: I tend to favor the hook shaped cable needles and these take that concept to a new level. I love that they are flexible, easy on my hands, and both the covering on the wire and the nylon tips keep them from being slippery. These belong in your notions bag!
