Chenille Needle - is a tapestry needle with a sharp point. They are used for most embroidery stitches when stitching with thicker fibers. The large eye makes it easy to thread when using a thick thread and the sharp point makes it the best choice when working on a tightly woven fabric that you need to pierce. The thickness of your needle is determined by the thickness of your working thread. The needle makes the hole for the thread to pass through. To small of a whole and your thread is hard to pull through and becomes worn and fuzzy quickly. Too large of a needle and your hole will show around your thread.
