A needle is an item which may be used with leather and thread in the player's inventory to make boots, gloves, and armour using the crafting skill.
It can be bought at the crafting stores in both Rimmington and Al Kharid for 1 coin or found from digging in Digsite level 3 sites.
If used on Archaeological expert he will say: "Hmm yes, I wondered why this race were so well dressed! It looks like they had mastery of needlework".
- The needle is unfortunately often used in scams due to it being nearly the same colour as the trading window's background. Because needles have the ability to stack, it can look like the item before it in the trade window is in a greater quantity than it actually is. This scam can be avoided by carefully checking the second trade screen.
