26 Pack of 36 Triangle Unpainted tall needles

$33.00 $16.50

50% off for reasons mentioned below!

This is a 25 pack of unpainted 36 Triangle needles. The reason these are being sold at a discount is that they are a 3.5 in. long needle vs. our standard size which is 3 in. These are old stock and may have a little bit of rusting starting on some of the needles. Otherwise they are first quality. These will arrive in a plain white tube that is significantly longer than other other needle tubes. Because these needles are an extra .5 in. they do not fit in our regular needle tubes.

About this needle:

36 Triangle (Black) Use for beginning stages of felting especially on larger sculptural projects; it helps shaping to go faster. This needle can also be used for attaching parts and for flat felting into prefelt.

About rust:

Rust generally does not affect the function of felting needles. They can be wiped and coated in an anti-corrosion oil if you want to clean them up and prevent further rusting. It is rare for rusted needles to discolor the wool you are working with as long as you have wiped them before you start using them.

Felting needles do tend to rust over time (over a number of months or years), especially when exposed to humidity. They are made of high carbon steel, not stainless steel.  We are now taking a number of new precautions so that our needles arrive in brand new condition at the time of purchase.

SECONDS needles are final sale (no returns).

A note on rust and tetanus: although rusty metal has become synonymous with the risk of tetanus, tetanus is not caused by rust itself, but by a bacteria that is prevalent in manure and soil. Our felting needles are manufactured and stored in a clean indoor environment. We believe that they are not a health risk, but please be sure that you feel comfortable and educated on this topic if you decide to purchase these needles.
