Punch Needle FAQs

What punch needle do I need?

You will first need to decide on the thickness of the yarn you are going to use, as punch needles are categorised according to yarn thickness. The yarn height when creating a looping stitch is the next thing to consider. It then comes down to brand. Oxford is one of the leading brands worldwide, including in New Zealand, but there are other high-quality brands of punch needles available too. It’s all about personal preference.

Do I need to use a special fabric for punch needle embroidery?

Yes, punch needles are designed to be used with specialist fabrics manufactured for punch needle embroidery. Standard fabrics would get damaged by the punch needle.

How do I stop my stitches from pulling out?

This is a common problem, particularly for beginners. There is a range of things you should check. Firstly, make sure you are punching your punch needle as far as it will go. Also, when moving to the next loop, make sure you don't lift the punch needle too high, as this can also pull out your loops. Other things to check for include knots in your yarn, whether the yarn is getting caught on something, and is the yarn tangled.

Why do my loops look uneven?

The reasons for loops being uneven are similar to the reasons for loops that are pulling out. So, check you are punching down as far as possible, make sure you are not lifting the punch needle too high after each stitch, and make sure your fabric isn't too loose.

Is there a difference between rug hooking and punch needle?

Rug hooking uses a different tool, and the technique is slightly different. The tool used in rug hooking has a hook at the end to pull the yarn back through. So, yes, there is a difference between punch needle and rug hooking.
