Oxford Punch Needle Sizes

To determine the Oxford Punch Needle size that’s right for you please choose two things:

  1. What width needle do you want?
  2. How tall do you want your loops to be?

First: choose the width needle you want. This will determine what materials you use in your punch. Choose from two widths: regular and fine:

  • Regular The regular needle can be used with heavy 3-ply rug yarn and bulky weight knitting yarn. You can also double, triple, and quadruple finer yarns and thread them together through the punch needle at the same time. ¼” wide strip of fabric also work beautifully in the regular needle. (1/4” wide strips are the same as 8/32” strips thus, these are known as #8 cut in the rug hooking world).

  • Fine
    The fine needle can be used with worsted weight, sock weight, baby weight,sport weight, tapestry, and needlepoint yarns. Narrow strips of fabric can also be used. We suggest 3/32” wide strips (known as #3 cut in the rug hooking world.)
