Tulip size 11 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. With smooth eyes, they are easy to thread. The tip is slightly rounded to avoid splitting the thread. This size is ideal for making multiple passes through size 15/0 beads. Size 11’s are ideal for beading and bead embroidery. I always recommend using Tulip needles in my own designs and projects throughout my blog!
