The Schmetz stretch machine needles are designed for use with suedes and elastic knitwear while the Jersey needles are designed to be used on knit fabrics and some stretch materials. They are optimized to help prevent skipped stitches which are often common when working with knits. They are made using quality high carbon steel wire. This makes them remarkably strong, and hard to break. They will also not corrode or rust for a very long time.
These 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.
They feature a medium ballpoint that is designed to pass through knits without breaking the threads.
Stretch: the needles feature a specially designed eye that helps prevent skipped stitches.
Jersey/Ball Point: the needles have slender eyes that hold the thread in place.
