The 3-strand needle is made to take two or three strands of floss, size 8 Perle Cotton or " Petite" Alpaca. Some over-dyed floss will feel stiff and not flow well through your needle. You can adjust by using 2 strands of floss. It will give your needlework a finer look and actually help those who tend to over-punch.
This green, long-handled 3-strand needle is longer in length and in diameter than the other (red) 3-strand needle but will not compromise quality. Some will find the larger handle more comfortable. Same solid quality as all the other CTR punchneedles.
