There is also a Chenille Size 26 in the range - the perfect hand quilting needle! It's short, fat and takes a thicker thread (I.e. Aurifil 12!) Chenille needles are large eye needles and are identical to a Tapestry or a Cross Stitch Needle in length and in diameter. However, the Chenille point is sharp, rather than round and blunt and is used for hand quilting plus in the art of crewel embroidery and ribbon embroidery. Please remember the higher the number the finer the needle.
