Handsewing Needle for Welting and Sole Stitching, 10 countZegZug
Ever since industrialization made them cheap and affordable, needles have been part of shoemaking tradition. They've been around far longer than sewing machines or industrial lasts. This is the very needle we use for welting and sole stitching.
Prep the needle for sole stitching by taking the tempering out with heat. Then bend to the desired curvature. This will make thread preparation and welting fast and easy. They will last you for many many pairs of shoes throughout the years.
