Igolochkoy Miniature Russian Punchneedle set includes three sizes of needles (1 strand, 3 strand, 6 strand), gauges and threaders, extra threaders and an instruction booklet teaching the technique. This brand is widely recognized as the finest quality made, with each needle being made by hand. The manufacturer of the needles strongly recommends using the Susan Bates super-grip hoop for Russian punchneedle. A customer (unsolicited) says, "they are the most wonderful needles ever made! Other punch work needles in no way compare to these. I have used them to "embroider" tops for bed sheets - and am still using them after 20 years. They make wonderful pile carpets for doll houses - are great to add designs to crazy quilts by embroidering over patterns in the fabric - and they have so many wonderful uses. Anyone who buys a set will be thrilled with them - this I can guarantee!"
