The Stretch sewing machine needle is designed to work trouble free with highly stretchy fabrics. The special design stops skipped stitches and looping of thread under your fabric, and will give a neater stitch pattern.
Some things you might want to use a Stretch needle for:
- For elastic or highly elastic knitted fabric
- The more elastic the material, the more suited the stretch needle is (if in doubt, use the stretch needle).
- Swimwear fabrics
- Fine jersey, silk jersey, single jersey, velour cloth
- Cotton knitwear
