    A "must have" for sewing with metallic and other specialty threads. It comes in sizes 80 and 90. The elongated eye prevents shredding and breaking of metallic threads. If you have struggled with metallics before and blamed the thread, have them try again with this specialty needle for trouble-free embellishment with these beautiful but sometime fragile threads.

    This needle was specially developed for using metal effect yarns. With 2mm, it has an extremely long needle eye in relation to the needle size which remains the same length in all needle sizes. The longer needle eye allows the metallic thread to glide extremely gently through the needle; this helps to optimally prevent thread breakages.

    They are trouble-free, easy sewing needles that can be used with sensitive metallic threads for sewing fabrics.

    Used with metallic or synthetic threads - this needle has a longer eye with a non-stick coating which helps prevent shredding and breaking of the metallic thread. Also easier to thread due to the larger eye.
    • Sew foil-like metallic threads.
    • Metallic embroidery or effect yarns should always be processed slowly so that the thread does not break.
    • If you require different needle sizes than sizes 80/12 or 90/14, you can use the Topstitch Needle.
