Tapestry needles are used for needle needlework like cross stitch and needlepoint. They are blunt ended, with a larger eye than a sewing needle. The blunt end of the needle pushes aside the threads so that you don't pierce the linen threads rather than the hole. This makes stitching on woven fabrics much easier,
This is a guideline for needle sizes:
- 14 (28 count) – 16 count fabric: Size 24 tapestry needle
- 18 count fabric: Size 26 tapestry needle
- 32 count and above: Size 26 or 28 tapestry needle
