Schmetz Jeans / Denim Needles
Schmetz Jean Needles are for denim and other tightly woven fabrics, also suitable for artificial leather, waxed cloth, and vinyl.
Schmetz 130/705H-J Jeans/Denim Needles have a modified, medium ballpoint tip and a reinforced blade that makes this needle excellent for penetrating denim, extra thick woven fabrics, or quilts with minimum deflection. This superior point design is Schmetz exclusive and reduces the risk of damaged fabric and skipped stitches. The heavier jeans threads work best with the larger needle. These needles can be used in household sewing machine brands where needles with a flat shank are required.
Most Schmetz Needles include two color-coded bands just below the shank. The top color indicates the type of needle, and the lower color indicates the size. The Schmetz Jeans/Denim Needles have a blue top band. Schmetz 130/705H-J Jeans/Denim Needles is a pack of five needles in a plastic case that slides shut for safe storage. The needle system, needle type, and needle size are printed on the front of the case.
