Key features of the Round Shank Needle:

The Round Shank Needle is very versatile. It can sew almost any woven fabric, regardless of the material composition, even thin, soft leather and synthetic leather is easy to work with.

At 1.63 mm, this needle's round shank has a smaller diameter than the flat shank of conventional household sewing machine needles. The special blade design ensures high needle stability and thus reduces needle breakage and skipped stitches. The chrome plating reduces wear and extends the needle life.

The Round Shank Needle is an industrial sewing machine needle that is also suitable for certain household sewing and overlock machines. These unique needles are adapted to the requirements of the respective model and are not interchangeable with other household or overlock needles.
