Schmetz leather needles are a type of sewing machine needle that are specifically designed for sewing on leather and other tough materials. They have a sharp, triangular point that can easily penetrate through thick layers of leather without damaging the material or causing it to stretch.
The needles come in a variety of sizes, typically ranging from 70/10 to 110/18, with larger sizes suitable for thicker leathers. The needles also have a larger eye and a deeper groove on the shaft to accommodate thicker threads, making them ideal for use with heavier decorative threads or topstitching thread.
Schmetz leather 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 leather without leaving residue or marks on the surface.
Schmetz leather needles are a great choice for sewers who work with leather or other heavy materials. They are durable, reliable, and able to produce strong, precise stitches on a variety of leathers and other tough fabrics.
