Sewing Machine Needles
- ORGAN NEEDLE : A needle system is a group of needles made to fit specific sewing machines. All needles in a system are of the same length and shank size but are of various diameters. Lower size numbers are narrower or thinner needles used for lighter materials.
- Designed for knitted fabrics with a high content of elastane, fabrics made from cotton or synthetic fibers. The rounded shape of the tip contributes to the separation of the fibers of the knitted material without damaging it.
- Suitable for medium weight fabrics, e.g. slightly heavier weight cotton, polyester, linen, lightweight upholstery fabric. Lighter-weight fabrics such as silk (chiffon, organza, crepe-de-chine) will require a smaller-sized needle. The lighter the fabric the smaller the needle required.
- Used in the manufacture of T-shirts, underwear, thin sweaters.
