Chenille sewing needles are large eye needles and are identical to a Tapestry or a Cross Stitch Needle in length and in diameter. However, the Chenille point is sharp, rather than round and blunt and is used in the art of crewel embroidery and ribbon embroidery. Originally they were used for chenille work, hence the name.
Sizes 13, 14 and 16 are commonly used for heavy and coarse fabrics. The finer sizes of 18 to 26 are also used in ribbon embroidery and embroidering with Perlé threads.
