The Schmetz leather needles are designed for use in leather works and with other non-woven 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 leather 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 makes 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.
The H in the 130/705 H system indicates that they have a scarf. This allows for the efficient grabbing of the thread by the bobbin hook on your machine. This ensures that a perfect stitch is achieved every time you sew.
Brother sewing machine needles have slender eyes that hold the thread in place for proper loop formation.
With the Schmetz Leather needles, the recommended threads are polyester, nylon, or other heavier thread such as heavy top-stitching thread.
The leather needles for sewing machines work best when used on leather, imitation leather, and heavy non-woven synthetics.
