It is important to choose the right sewing needle, in order to get the best sewing result. We have many different needle systems in stock and cover the need of needles for most sewing machines. We only supply needles of the highest quality, our main supplier of needles is SCHMETZ .
Needles come in two main types: straight and curved (for blind stitch machines and overlock machines) and in many different sizes, depending on the material that is to be sewn. In Sweden there are mainly two different types of standard sizes, the most common is from 60 which is the thinnest, to 120 which is the thickest.
As a rule, knitted materials are to be sewn with a thinner needle than woven materials. Too fine needles can cause fiber damage as these needles have a tendency to vibrate. Experience has shown that needles coarser than Nm 80 and Nm 90 cannot be used, especially not for synthetic materials.
The following needle tips are available: sharp tip (R), normal round tip (SES), small ball point (SUK), large ballpoint (SRF).
General rules for selecting the needle for knitted materials:
– Cotton Jersey: 70 Nm, tip SES
– Wool Jersey: Nm 70-80, tip SUK
– Synthetic Jersey: Nm 80-90, tip SES
Always test the synthetic material before sewing the garments.
