About This Item:
Schmetz needles have been manufactured since 1851 and are known to be the leading quality needle for your machine. In addition to making top quality needles for every need, they have been the leading manufacturer of sewing machine needles in the world since beginning production in 1851.
Schmetz needles are color coded according to the style of needle.
Microtex needles are coded PURPLE. Size 70/10 is a good size for completing art quilts based on the small needle size and its ability to penetrate tightly woven batiks and other fabrics as well as layers of fusible web.
According to Schmetz, Microtex needles have a very slim acute point. Their recommended fabric use is for micro fibers, polyester, silk, foils, artificial leather, and coated materials. The very thin acute point creates beautiful topstitching and perfectly straight stitches for quilt piecing when precision is paramount.
5 needles are included in this package.
