The bronze needle is 13 cm long and weighs about 20 grams. It has a tightly attached round eye (2 cm) into which you tie a string (textile, leather) and then wrap the pierced sheath with the string under the needle to ensure that it does not slip out. If you wear the cloak the same way, we can also recommend sewing the eye directly to its permanent position.
