The Metallic Needle is a must-have for sewing with sensitive metallic threads due to its extra-long (2mm) needle eye. The long eye allows metallic sewing and embroidery threads to glide effortlessly through the eye, so that they can be handled carefully without any shredding, tearing or breaking. Foil-like decorative threads benefit particularly from this.

Thanks to the slightly rounded point, the Metallic Needle can easily be used with a wide range of fabrics. It has a long service life due to high-quality chrome plating. It is ideal for sewing decorative stitches with metallic threads and is also suitable for embroidery with embroidery machines.

Suitable fabrics/materials
• For metallic sewing and embroidery threads, especially for foil-like threads
• For decorative sewing and embroidery on an array of fabrics

• In the case of flat foil threads, the thread should not be pulled out at the top but always from the side of the reel (see figure) to prevent the thread from twisting and breaking
• To prevent the threads from tearing, you can also try to significantly reduce the thread tension and sewing more slowly than you would with normal threads
• A longer stitch length improves the shine of metallic threads and also helps to reduce thread breakage
• Fit all household sewing machine brands

System: 130 MET
