Stretch Sewing Machine Needles
Stretch needles are a type of sewing machine needle that is specifically designed for sewing stretchy fabrics such as jersey, spandex, and other elastic materials. These needles are engineered to prevent skipped stitches and fabric damage, which can be common issues when sewing stretchy materials with standard needles.
The tip of the needle is lightly rounded which allows the needle to penetrate the fabric without cutting through the fibers. This reduces the risk of fabric damage and produces smoother, more even stitches.
