Ball Point Jersey Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles
The ball point jersey needles have slightly rounded tips that allow them to go between the material threads of knitted fabrics, rather than pierce them. This prevents runs, snags and skipped stitches. Similar to the Schmetz "stretch" needles but especially for sewing on knits. The medium ball point does not damage or break knitted fibres.
These needles are suitable for all domestic sewing machines.
The needle code is: 130/705H also known as 15x1 where the shank is flat one side and round the other.
When choosing Schmetz needles consider that the smaller the number, the lighter weight fabric and thread you should be using. As a guide:
60/8 - 70/10 needles- light weight fabrics
80/12 -90/14 needles - medium weight fabrics
100/16 and up - heavy weight fabrics
It's a good idea to have an assortment of needle sizes and types on hand in order to be able to experiment and find the one that works best for your combination of needle and thread.
