Schmetz Metallic needles are a type of sewing machine needle that are specifically designed for use with metallic and other specialty threads. They have a slightly larger, elongated eye that allows the thread to pass through smoothly without shredding or breaking.
The needles come in a variety of sizes, typically ranging from 75/11 to 100/16, with larger sizes suitable for thicker metallic threads. The needles also have a sharp, tapered point and a slim shaft that reduces friction as it moves through the fabric, reducing the risk of skipped stitches or broken threads.
Schmetz Metallic 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 metallic threads without leaving residue or marks on the surface.
Schmetz Metallic needles are a great choice for sewers who want to create beautiful, metallic-stitched designs on their projects. They are durable, reliable, and able to handle the unique demands of metallic and other specialty threads.
