The SCHMETZ Super Stretch Needle is closer to the hook due to the special flat shank. The special design in the scarf area also creates a larger needle thread loop, which is more easily grabbed by the hook. These features prevent skipped stitches even with highly elastic fabrics. The reinforced blade helps to reduce needle breakage and achieves particularly straight stitches. The wider and shorter eye, combined with a wider thread groove, means that the Super Stretch Needles can be used with thicker sewing threads. This places less stress on the threads so that they no longer break.
The Super Stretch Needles can be used in all household sewing machines that require the 130/705 H needle system, as well as in some overlock machines (refer to your user manual). Due to its characteristics, the Super Stretch Needle is an alternative to the Stretch Needle when sewing with thicker threads.
Suitable fabrics: Highly elastic fabrics and ultra-fine stretch fabric like microfiber. It is also suitable for sewing lingerie or bras, as the blade reinforcement helps to prevent needle breakage.
Special features: Special flat shank, reinforced blade, wider and shorter eye, wider thread groove, special transition from the scarf to the eye.
Point shape: Medium ball point. The medium ball point is suitable for all types of knitted fabric, because it displaces the loops, thus preventing damage to the material. Instead of nickel, the needle has a chrome plating and is more resistant to abrasion. These needles can be identified quickly and easily as special needles by the white coloured ring on the shoulder of the Super Stretch Needle.
Colour marking: White.
