The Chibi is actually the little container that holds the Jumbo Darning Needle with it's special bent tip. But everyone calls the darning needle itself a chibi needle. It's the greatest sewing up needle ever for knitting and crochet work, not to mention darning. The chibi is a must have darning needle for all knitters.
The darning needle is engineered with a flat side that helps stop the yarn from twisting too tightly (forming worms) or too loosely (coming apart to shreds). The flat side of the darning needle makes it easier to control as you sew. The Chibi jumbo darning needle is sized just right for all gauges of hand knitting work. It has a blut tip that is just like a knitting needle tip so it won't split the yarn. Once you have a chibi darning needle, you will never use anything else. It is simply a well engineered darning needle and it works perfectly. Two jumbo darning needles come with the Chibi holder.
A smaller version of the chibi darning needle is also available for huck weaving, extra fine knitting and similar fine work where a blunt needle tip is an advantage.
