Embroidery Tools

embroidery stilettos

Set of 2 Embroidery Stilettos

Large Stiletto Length: 11cm (approx 4.5")
Small Stiletto Length: 6.8cm (approx 2.75")

Traditionally used in whitework and goldwork to open holes in the ground fabric to make eyelets or to pass threads through to the back (known as plunging), stilettos have many other uses. They can be used to widen holes for the needle when using thick or textured threads, as laying tools to keep multiple strands in order, to nudge threads into place or make fine adjustments to stitches.

In this set, the larger stiletto will create holes up to 14mm wide and smaller up to 8mm wide, making them ideal tools for your workbox.
