This the best yarn threader we could find. It works with both Appletons Crewel and Tapestry weight wool. The flat metal tip makes it easy to maneuver into the eye of a needle, in a correct vertical position giving the user threading success every time compared to the wire threaders. It also has a small hole at the rounded top to thread a narrow ribbon so that it will not get buried at the bottom of a sewing basket or project bag. A great choice for someone who loves to stitch but struggles with wire threaders.
