Beginner punch needle kits are now in the shop! I realize this probably should have been the first kit I offered, but hey- better late than never, right? I put this kit together because the right materials are so important to the success of your punch needle project (hello tension!), and gathering all these supplies often means buying from many different places.
The beginner kit includes:
The kit comes with a selection of wool yarn in your choice of colour palette: neutrals, blues, or pink & gold (which I used to make this fun grapefruit stuffy, by the way). You can use your chosen palette as a base, and add any scrap pieces of bulky weight (size #5) yarn you have at home.
I designed these kits to be as open-ended as possible: turn your punch needle creation into a wall hanging by framing it in a wood embroidery hoop, create something wearable such as a bag or iron-on patch, make coasters or a plant pocket for a housewarming gift, or stitch up a super-soft stuffy. There are so many possibilities with punch needle!

Hi Mary Grace- thanks for your message.
I only sell the #10 regular Oxford Punch Needle which works with size 5 (bulky) weight yarn or 1/4" wide strips of wool fabric. The Oxford Company sells a range of sizes including the #14 punch needle for use with size 4 (worsted) weight yarn and looks more like needlepoint. You can find more information on the different sizes of Oxford punch needles here (scroll all the way to the bottom):
Another option is the Ultra Punch which I believe uses a embroidery floss or other fine-weight yarn. I haven’t used one myself, but this might be a good option for you.
Hope that helps!
Do you have needles sizes. Normally I use 3 size. 1 for very fine thread, another one for normal thread and another one for wool.
I am interested please.

I’m excited to share that my punch needle bunny pattern and kit are now available in the shop! Perfect for beginners, this bunny is super-simple to make and gives you the opportunity to practice making flat stitches, loop stitches (for that sweet, fluffy-bunny face) and adding small details like the nose, cheeks and eyes. This bunny looks adorable in a nursery or kid’s room, and makes a thoughtful gift for a crafty new mom.
