Embroidery needles, particularly those in size 10, are designed with specific features that make them ideal for certain types of needlework. While their length, diameter, and point profile are consistent with those of standard Sharps needles, the key difference lies in the design of the eye. 

  • Eye Size:  Embroidery needles have a longer eye compared to Sharps needles. This larger eye makes it significantly easier to thread stranded cotton or multiple strands of embroidery floss, which can be bulkier and more challenging to work with than a single thread.
  • Length and Diameter: When working on detailed and fine stitching, the needle's dimensions will provide precision.
  • Point Profile:  The point profile features a sharp, fine point that allows for smooth penetration of the fabric, ensuring that the stitches are neat and precise.

The distinguishing feature of size 10 embroidery needles is their longer eye, which facilitates easier threading of stranded cotton. This combination makes them particularly well-suited for detailed embroidery work that requires the use of multiple strands of thread.
