IQ-needle / needle,The elderly supplies


The hole of the needle tail now is so small that is very hard for people to thread, especially for the elderly. Sometimes, this situation even gets worse while the surrounding lights were not so good.
We design a kind of needle combined with two parts, one is a needle with a chamfered hole in the needle tail and the other is a thin circle made of high and elastic fibers which is to replace the small hole. Also, the fiber circle will change its shape when it experiences tension force to make the action of sewing possible.
