Only problem with 1# is if you accidently melt the small needle in the process of burning the haystack.

wood burns at approximately 900-1200F. Hay is likely less than this. Steel melts at 2750 F.

I don't really know what typical needles are made of,but I thought that if it was in the middle of a haystack,it would melt the needle because of the needle's small size.

size has nothing to do with melting temperature

Just did some research,and you are correct about it not melting. Apparently,modern sewing needles are made of Carbon Steel (burning point= 2600F) And a haystack burns at around 180F

My bad, 280F for the hale pile,not 180F.
