Description

First: choose the width needle you want. This will determine what materials you use in your punch. Choose from two widths: regular and fine:

  • Regular The regular needle can be used with heavy 3-ply rug yarn and bulky weight knitting yarn. You can also double, triple, and quadruple finer yarns and thread them together through the punch needle at the same time. ¼” wide strip of fabric also work beautifully in the regular needle. In South Africa Charity Seriously Chunky, Kartopu Melange etc. are the best options for the width of this needle.
  • Fine
    The fine needle can be used with worsted weight, sock weight, baby weight,sport weight, tapestry, and needlepoint yarns. Narrow strips of fabric can also be used. We suggest 3/32” wide strips (known as #3 cut in the rug hooking world.) In South Africa the majority of Double Knit, Aran, Worsted or Chunky yarns will be suitable. Examples are Charity DK & Chunky, Himalaya Everyday, African Expressions Harmony.

Next: choose how tall you want your loops to be:

  • For 3/8” tall loops (9.52mm)
  • For 1/4” tall loops  (6.35mm)
  • for 1/8″ tall loops (3.18mm)

Now pick your punch needle. Choose the needle width and loop height that you need. Here are the sizes we offer:

  • #9 (3/8″ loop) regular
  • #9 (3/8″ loop) fine
  • #10 (1/4″ loop) regular
  • #10 (1/4″ loop) fine
  • “The Mini” #14 (1/8″ loop) – available in fine only
  • “The Mini With Heels” #13 (3/16″ loop) – available in fine only
