Glovers Needle, John James, cutting leather sewing needle, sharp needle
£3.50 10 Available
Love this


This is a short leather sewing needle, knows as a glovers needle. The tip is triangular with sharpened sides that easily cut through thin leather and other tough materials (like inner bike tube) without causing unnecessary abrasion.

The shaft is 44mm long and the diameter is 0.86mm. It's a pleasure to use with the No. 40 lin retors buttonhole thread.

If ordering a whole packet of 25 you'll receive the original packaging.
If ordering individual needles, I'll take them out and pin them to a piece of (waste) paper.


genuine John James are the best and the cutting, triangular tip can be so very time saving when you don't have to pre-punch your holes.Works especially well with soft, clothing grade leathers
