Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles
Metallic - size 80/12
Pack of 5
Schmetz needles are amongst the finest engineered sewing machine needles in the world.
Schmetz Metallic Needles are designed for use with sensitive metallic threads. Metallic threads are made typically with a rayon or nylon core which is then sheathed in a fairly fragile coloured metallic layer. The problem most commonly encountered with metallic threads is that the outer metallic sheath splits and then ruches up the nylon core until the thread snaps. These metallic needles have been designed so that the inner surface of the eye is extremely forgiving against the metallic thread, producing as little friction as possible.
These needles are perfect for medium weight metallic threads.
This pack contains five (5) needles. For best results, always use a sharp new needle for your project.
If you experience skipped stitches when using this needle, you might be using a needle that is a little bit too small. Try changing to a size 90/14 Topstitch needle.
