Ballpoint Needles

Schmetz ballpoint needles are a type of sewing machine needle that are specifically designed for use with knit and stretch fabrics. They have a rounded tip that allows the needle to pass through the knit loops of the fabric without causing damage or creating runs.

The needles come in a variety of sizes, typically ranging from 70/10 to 100/16, with smaller sizes suitable for lightweight knits and larger sizes for heavier fabrics. The needles also have a slightly larger eye and a deeper groove on the shaft to accommodate thicker threads, making them ideal for use with elastic or other stretchy threads.

Schmetz ballpoint needles are made from high-quality materials, including a reinforced blade and shank, to prevent bending or breaking during use. They are also coated with a special non-stick material that allows them to easily glide through knits and stretch fabrics without snagging or creating runs.

Schmetz ballpoint needles are a great choice for sewers who work with knit or stretch fabrics, or who need a needle that can handle elastic or other stretchy threads. They are reliable, durable, and able to produce strong, precise stitches on a variety of materials.
