For soft, elastic materials and highly elastic knitted fabric
Middle ball tip
Special hollow groove
Usable in all conventional sewing machines
Ideal for processing elastic and highly elastic fabrics: These high-performance "Stretch” sewing machine needles offer the best prerequisites for sewing work on t-shirt fabric, lycra, silk jersey, or knitted goods thanks to its special hollow groove shape and a middle ball tip that is rounded off. Faulty stitches or cutting the elastic fibres are impressively prevented. The high quality of the sewing machine needles for stretch fabrics furthermore ensures longevity, even with intensive use. Thanks to their flat shanks, they are suitable for all conventional household sewing machines – even all conventional yarns can be used. The economy pack contains five needles in thickness 75.
Select your needle size by the weight of fabric you are stitching.
European needles range in size from 60 to 120. This refers to the diameter of the needle on the shaft just above the eye. American needles are sized from 8 to19 in an arbitrary numbering system and paired with corresponding European sizes: for example, 60/8 or 70/10; the larger the number, the larger the needle.
60/8 needle for lightweight fabrics like georgette or organza
70/10 or 80/12 needle for medium-weight jersey, Lycra, linen, or calf leather
90/14 and 100/16 for heavy fabrics like jeans, vinyl, upholstery or canvas
110/18 or 120/19 for very heavy fabrics.
Once you have selected your needle size, match the needle point to your fabric. The needle type and name is usually determined by the characteristics of the needle’s point.
The universal needle is the safest needle choice for most fabrics. Has slightly rounded point and elongated scarf to enable almost fool-proof meeting of needle and bobbin hook.
Troubleshooting: When fabric is not medium-weight woven, consider needle specifically suited to fabric. For example, size 18 universal needle works on heavy denim, but size 18 jeans needle works better.
Ballpoint needles are for heavier and looser sweater knits.
Stretch needle for highly elastic fabrics like Spandex, or Lycra. Both have rounded points that penetrate between fabric threads rather than pierce them. (Stretch-needle point is slightly less rounded than ballpoint).
Microtex and sharp needles are for sewing microfiber, silk, synthetic leather, precisely stitching edges & and heirloom sewing. The needle has an acute point and while essentially trouble-free, your fabric may require a Teflon, roller, or even/dual-feed presser foot.
Leather needles are excellent for sewing natural leather. They have a slight cutting point (almost like an arrowhead). On synthetic leather, unless it’s very heavy synthetic, it cuts rather than pierces a stitch hole - and can tear leather. Most synthetic leathers require a Microtex or sharp needle.
Denim (jeans) needles are for heavyweight denim, duck, canvas, upholstery fabrics, artificial leather and vinyl. Denim needles have a deeper scarf, acute point, and a modified shaft to sew without pushing fabric down into needle-plate hole. Goes through fabric and meets bobbin hook better on dense woven fabrics. If stitches skip when sewing very heavy fabrics, try larger needle and sew more slowly or walk needle through fabric (by turning hand crank).
Self-threading needles - enables easier threading for sewers with vision problems. It is a universal needle with slip-in threading slot at the eye. Always pull the sewn piece back away from needle before cutting thread so needle doesn’t unthread. Needle works well on woven fabrics, but may occasionally snag knits, so test-sew to check for fabric and needle compatibility.
