    Overlock / Serger needles have a groove on the front and back sides of the blade to reduce skipped stitches. The second long groove is necessary to create chain stitches like overlock or coverlock stitches.

    ELx705 CF needles have increased strength due to a reinforced blade, leading to less needle breakage and straighter stitches.
    ELx705 CF needles have a slightly rounded point for universal use.
    ELx705 CF needles have a Chrome Finish (CF), increasing wear resistance, reducing heat and wear, and aids in slipping through the fabric.

    The ELx705 CF needle is a semi-ballpoint design and is suitable for knits and wovens.

    Special sewing machines like overlock and coverlock machines often require special needle systems such as the ELx705 CF. These unique needles are adapted to the requirements of the respective model and are not interchangeable with other household or overlock needles.

    Like most household needles, the SCHMETZ ELx705 CF Overlock needle has a flat shank for easy positioning in the sewing machine.

    The key feature of the ELx705 CF Overlock needle that distinguishes it from other household needles is the second thread groove. It supports the formation of chain stitches, such as overlock or coverlock stitches, and ensures that only low thread tension is required to form the stitch.

    Like the Universal needle, the ELx705 CF has a slightly rounded needle point, making it universally applicable and suitable for handling a wide variety of materials.

    Size 65/9 needles are suitable for most fine fabrics.
    Size 80/12 needles are suitable for most lightweight fabrics.
    Size 90/14 needles are suitable for most medium and heavyweight fabrics.

    The difference between ELx705 CF and ELx705 SUK CF needles is that the ELx705 CF has a slightly rounded tip for universal use on numerous materials, whilst the ELx705 SUK CF has a medium ball tip which is particularly suitable for all types of knitwear, such as jersey.
    The CF in the needle designation stands for Chrome Finish. This means that the needles are coated with chrome.
