Antiskid needle / Needle

Antiskid needle

As we all know, the surface of the needle is very smooth, so, when people mend, fingers can not hold a tiny needle owing to the little friction between the needle and fingers ,causing the needle to slips between your fingers, and not to pierce objects to mend.
To make mending easier, we have designed a needle with spiracle, solving the problem of slipping between the needle and fingers, increasing the grip to save efforts for mending.
