Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles
Microtex - size 80/12
Pack of 5
Schmetz needles are amongst the finest engineered sewing machine needles in the world.
Schmetz Microtex Needles are designed for stitching micro fibres and closely woven fibres such as poplin and silks. Their sharp points and strong, slim shafts also make them very useful for patchwork piecing.
These size 80 needles are perfect for medium-weight cotton thread, silk or blended threads. The groove on this needle will fit most cotton threads labelled 50-weight or similar, such as Gutermann 50 weight cotton.
This pack contains five (5) needles. For best results, always use a new sharp needle for your project.
If you experience skipped stitches when using this needle, you might be using the wrong size needle for your thread. Try changing to a size 90/14 Topstitch needle. If you find you get holes left in closely woven fibres, change to a lighter thread and downsize to a size 70/10 Microtex needle.
