Betweens

Selection of betweens needles. Selection of betweens needles.

A betweens is a short (c. 3-4 cm in length), fine needle with a small, round eye and very sharp point. These needles are often used for tailoring, fine needlework and quilt making. Some manufacturers at the beginning of the twenty-first century also produced a quilting needle, which is slightly shorter and narrower than a betweens.
