Tulip needles, a premium brand of Japanese beading needles, are offered in sizes 10, 11, and 12. Tulip needs are easier to thread and feel better in your hand than traditional needles. They bend, but have memory and spring back to their original shape. Tulip needles are a must-have for any detailed beader and are a great tool for bead embroidery and soutache projects. These needles’ eyes are designed to make threading easy and the tips are ever so slightly rounded.
