Holds one felting needle, to provide slightly more grip than holding the needle by itself.
The entire piece -with the shaft inserted into the end cap - is 1.5"/3.5cm long. Does not come with a needle.
The interior wooden shaft is held in place with help of a black silicone loop - you remove the shaft from the end cap with a combination of gentle un-screwing motion and pulling, and replace it with a gentle screwing-in and pushing. The silicone buffer is naturally grippy, while still allowing for ergonomic 'wiggle room'. The "L" shape at the top of a felting needle will fit between the shaft and the end cap.
