The Schmetz universal and ball point needles are designed to be used for most woven and knits fabrics. They are made using quality high carbon steel wire mixed with nickel. This makes them remarkably strong, and hard to break. They will also not corrode or rust for a very long time.
The Schmetz ball point and universal sewing machine needles use the 130/705 H system, which is compatible with most home sewing machines, including Brother, Baby Lock, Bernette, Bernina, Elna, EuroPro, Husqvarna/Viking, Janome, Juki, Kenmore, Necchi, New Home, Pfaff, Simplicity, Singer, and White.
The Schmetz sewing machine needles come with flat shanks, which make them fit more easily into your machine, ensuring the perfect stitch every time. This reduces the risk of breakage while also giving you an easier time as you replace or try to fit them into your machine for the first time.
