DMC Darners Needles
These needles are longer and more slender than all other types of needles and have a small eye. Running and darning stitch projects commonly use this type of needle, as the longer needle length is helpful for this type of embroidery. This is especially true with swedish weaving or decorative darning, when you may have several running stitches on the needles at any given time.
Darners are ideally suited to running stitch and darning darning stitch embroideries. You can use yarn darners for heavy finishing jobs such as sewing buttons through cushions.
