WEFTY Needle Aubergine. The only needle specially designed for weaving fabric strips and bias tape, invented by a weaver. The WEFTY fabric weaving needle is 5.5in long and comes in a set of two. One is 1in wide for use with 1in fabric strips, and the other is 1/2in wide for use with 1/2in fabric strips. The WEFTY has a tab at the end for looping the end of the strip (much like the eye of a needle), securing it in place as you weave. Its flat construct ensures that the WEFTY will glide through your project without disturbing the design - all while holding and pulling the fabric strip tucked neatly behind it. The grooves on the top allow you to choose how to move it through your project: You may grip the WEFTY by the sides, or push it from the top using just your finger.
