Embroidery Needles are designed with a light ball point and especially wide eye and groove (in comparison to the universal needle). This allows the needles to accommodate voluminous & woollen threads for decorative embroidery work.
Schmetz Embroidery Needles are available in various sizes (cross sectional diameter). Sizes start from 75nm (0.75mm thickness) up to 90nm (0.9mm thickness).
The size you require is basically dependant on the weight / material thickness and that of the thread you are embroidering with. For more voluminous threads and heavier materials select the size 90 needle.
For ease of identification Schmetz stamp the needle size on the shank of every needle they manufacture plus add a coloured tip. The Embroidery Needle Tip is a: RED TIP.
