    Overlock / Serger needles have a groove on the front and back sides of the blade to reduce skipped stitches.

    ELx705 needles have increased strength due to a reinforced blade, leading to less needle breakage and straighter stitches.
    ELx705 needles have a slightly rounded point for universal use.

    The ELx705 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. 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 overlock needle has a flat shank for easy positioning in the sewing machine.

    The key feature of the ELx705 overlock needle that distinguishes it from other household needles is the second thread groove, which supports the formation and creation 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 has a slightly rounded needle point, making it universally applicable and suitable for handling a wide variety of materials.

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