Clover Punch Needle Combo Pack – Includes 3 and 6 Ply Needles. Great for Bunka Embroidery
3-Ply needle is used for 1/4 pull Bunka Yarn. Can also be used with 3 ply embroidery floss and perle 8 cotton
6-Ply is used for regular 2/4 pull Bunka Yarn. Can also be used with 6 ply floss and perle 5 cotton.
For Bunka Embroidery: Use 3-Ply with 1/4 pull or when smaller stitched areas are indicated in regular Bunka kits and 6-Ply for regular stitching. Plus, we find both needles work beautifully with our Thread Painting Panels.
Can also be used For Punch Embroidery: Recommended by Clover for 3 ply Embroidery Floss. We find the needle also works with size 8 perle / pearl cotton and it works well with higher count Evenweave fabric.
This needle creates a higher stitch tension when used with Bunka Yarn and the stitches are a little more taut and lay closer to the surface of the fabric. We really like this needle for specific applications and we continue to experiment with what it can accomplish.
