High quality Schmetz needles. A general purpose needle for effortless threading. Formerly known as a Handicap Needle. Not for use with sensitive fabrics (i.e., silk, microfibre, etc.) because the slot might create pulled threads. It should also not be used for quilting as the fibers of the batting might be pulled out. Not recommended for use with Denim as the structure of the needle eye is too weak.
Simply slide your thread down the shaft of the needle. When it reaches the slit in the eye, give it a tug and pull it into the eye of the needle. No need to wet your thread and try to poke it through the closed hole. Size #14/90, 5 needles per pack.
