Trapunto needles are used in the very specialist art form of Trapunto Needlework, Italian Quilting and 3D stitching projects.
This particular form of needlework creates images in a 3D effect using the same colour thread as the background fabric and therefore gives the effect of a sophisticated tone on tone look.
Trapunto, from the Italian for “to embroider,” is a method of quilting that is also called “stuffed technique.” A puffy, decorative feature, trapunto utilizes at least two layers, the underside of which is slit and padded, producing a raised surface on the quilt.
This unique kit comprises of 3 hand sewing needles all with large eyes for easy threading of even the heaviest gauge of wools.
The long, ball pointed sewing needle is ideal for stuffing while the smaller, sharp pointed needles are intended for surface stitching and decorative work.
