STAR NEEDLE Fine (Gauge 40) The higher the Gauge, the finer the needle.
This needle is a great no-nonsense needle. This needle is designed in a star/crown, rather than a triangle it has fine ridges, leaving no holes while working. Great for sculpting, detail work, smoothing out surfaces. If you are looking for an all-around-needle, this is the one! I found the star needle 40 gauge perfect for fine work. It doesn't leave any holes and is a perfect universal needle.
To avoid braking: Puncture, don’t wiggle!
Please note that the felting needles are fragile. Make sure that you always puncture the needle at the same angle and take it out the same way. Avoid lateral tension, do not wiggle! It is advisable to always have some extra needles in stock, especially if you are a beginner.
These needles are extremely sharp and should only be used with children under adult supervision.
