Tulip size 10 short beading needles are springy and strong to resist warping and breaking. The needle points are a special design to ease between beads and avoid splitting the thread. Tulip beading needles eyes are smooth and easy to thread. Furthermore, the tips of Tulip beading needles are slightly rounded to avoid splitting your thread of choice. Size 10 short Tulip needles are ideal for bead embroidery and work with Shibori ribbon, because they move cleanly throughout the backing and beadwork. I always recommend using Tulip needles in my own designs and projects throughout my blog!
