Made of 2 needles soldered together, the eye in the Big Eye Needle is in the middle. The large expanding eye allows ribbon, yarn, and all sizes of CLon/SLon to pass through easily. This needle is a must have for beaded kumihimo.
Big Eye needles by BeadSmith come in two different lengths, 2.125 inch or 5 inch. I prefer the longer one for big beads such as 8/0 and 6/0.
