    A very slim needle with a thin shaft that helps make very straight stitches. It was developed for the modern microfibres and polyesters and high thread count, high quality fabrics used today. The point is very sharp - thus the name - but because of this it is a bit more fragile and needs to be changed more regularly. This is a great needle for piecing high thread count fabrics like Batiks, silks, and microfibers. It is also used for beautiful topstitching or edge stitching. It comes in sizes 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 and 110.

    The very sharp point makes this needle ideal for tightly woven fabrics including synthetic materials like polyester, silk and laminates.

    The Microtex needle, generically known as a sharp needle, has a very slim acute point for precision stitches. Use for piecing & quilting, batiks, silk and more. With such a fine point, this needle gets dull faster than other needle types, so always have extras for quick replacement.

    The Microtex needle has a very slim acute point for easier piecing of very fine or densely woven fabrics.

    Use for the precise stitching of edges, also for silk, microfibre fabrics, coated materials, foils and artificial leather.

    Perfect for fine appliqué work.

    Suitable fabrics:
    • Silk and microfibre fabric
    • Lining taffeta
