      Hi Harriet, ordinary sewing needles can be used to stitch into calico but these can be a bit difficult to thread with embroidery thread or strands of fine wool unless you have larger needles, so you might also want to look for some Embroidery needles. Embroidery needles have a bigger ‘eye’ and so they are much easier to thread. They come in a pack like ordinary sewing needles and you get different sizes of needle in the pack which can be useful. Both sewing and embroidery needles have a sharp point so they go through the fabric smoothly, so either would do.

      Hope that helps. Good luck with your project!
