These are my favourite needles when I want a strong needle with a big eye for heavier threads like perle cotton and sashiko thread.
I use them for pretty much everything, sewing on bag handles and clasp purse frames, sashiko stitching, applique with dyed yarn fabrics, zakka stitching. They are my go to needle because they are easy to handle when my eyes and fingers are tired, and because my fingers are clumsy with small needles.
