A new needle size

We noticed that we had a gap in our needle sizes: There was a big jump in diameter between the #17 needle (1.4mm) and the huge #15 needle (1.8mm). It may not seem like 0.4mm sounds like much but when you handle the needles the difference is very obvious.

We have filled the gap by adding a #16 (1.6mm) needle to our selection; it is a little over 2″ long, just slightly longer than the #17s. We are selling them for $0.45 each, or $1.05 for a pack of three.

Our needle selection, finest (at top) to thickest (at bottom). The apparent curvature of some of the needles is actually camera distortion.
