The 3-strand needle is made to take two or three strands of floss, size 8 Perle' Cotton or " Petite" Alpaca. Some over-dyed floss will feel stiff and not flow well through your needle. You can adjust by using 2 strands of floss. It will give your needlework a finer look and actually help those who tend to over-punch.
The green 3-strand needle! This punchneedle is longer in length and in diameter but will not compromise quality. This new handle is larger which some will find more comfortable. Same solid quality as all the other CTR punchneedles.
