Long single pointed needles are called mattress needles or buttoning needles. They come in various lengths between 10" to 14" (25-35cm). They are used for sewing through paddings, including installing buttons and tufting. Beginners should start with a 10" (25mm) long needle.
Long, double pointed needles
Long double pointed needles are called upholsterer's needles, double point needles or round pointed needles. They come in various lengths between 8" to 16" (25cm to 40cm). They have very sharp points at both ends, with the hole a few cm's down from one point. They are used for blind stitch through hessian and padding, and for edge stitching. They are also used for buttoning and tufting work. Beginners can replace a long single pointed needle, with a 10" or 12" double pointed needle.
