The only needle specially designed for weaving fabric strips and bias tape, made by a weaver. The WEFTY fabric weaving needle is 5.5" long and comes in a set of two. One is 1" wide for use with 1" fabric strips, and the other is 1/2" wide for use with 1/2" fabric strips.
The WEFTY has a tab at the end for looping the end of the strip, securing it in place as you weave. It's 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.
Made with PLA.
When prepping fabric strips to weave, designer Tara Jaye suggests folding the sides into the middle and press as shown in the second photo. This is she came up with the dimensions of the fabric-to-needle fit.
