A beautiful and elegant embroidery laying tool. Lightweight but sturdy, the stiletto features an angled flattened end of shaping and smoothing materials, blending into a tapered cylindrical end with a sharp point for lifting and placing stitches or to use as a boring tool. Made of brass, reflected in its colour, once you have tried working with a stiletto, you wont look back. One of the secret ways in which professional embroiderers adjust their stitching to make it look perfect.
If you’re not sure how or why you would use one, check out our pro tip on stilettos and see the reviews for what our customers like to use theirs for. We recommend it in particular for monogramming, broderie anglaise, silk shading and goldwork as an alternative to the mellor. Comes with a little silicone cap for the pointy end.
