For years I have been testing needles this is THE NEEDLE.
-1 steel needle - straight (which I find much better to work with than with a curved needle). .lenght: 7.8 cm .width: ..eye: 2mm ..center: 1.3 mm ..tip: 0.8 mm
for me this needle has the best qualities to sew espadrilles: -it's long enough to push inside and pull outside of the soles with the grip of your fingers (unlike smaller needles that get lost among your fingers, the sole and the fabric ..... or those ones that require some rubber or metal aid thimbles and other tools to be able to both pull and push the needle.... -it's strong enough to go through sole and fabric or leather all toghether - the tip is sharp but fine to push with ease
Orders placed before any Friday before 9.00 a.m. (Spanish time) will be shipped the next Saturday morning, otherwise they will be shipped on the Saturday morning of the following week.
After the shipping date, these are the estimate delivery times:
.to Spain: from 3 to 4 days .to the European Union countries (parcels below 500 gr): from 1 to 2 weeks .to the European Union countries (parcels over 500 gr): less than a week .to the rest of Europe: from one to two weeks .to U.S. & Canada (parcels below 500 gr): from 2 to 3 weeks .to U.S. & Canada (parcels over 500 gr): about a week .to Everywhere Else: from 2 to 3 weeks
