Key features of the Metallic Needle:

  • The Metallic Needle has an extra-long needle eye: It is 2 mm long in all needle sizes.
  • The long eye allows metallic sewing and embroidery threads to glide effortlessly through the eye, so that they can be handled carefully without any tearing. 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.
  • Long service life due to high-quality chrome plating
  • Ideal for sewing decorative stitches with metallic threads
  • Also suitable for embroidery with embroidery machines


Tips: 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.
