Why is it called Super Stretch?
The SCHMETZ Super Stretch Needle is closer to the hook due to the special flat shank. The special design in the scarf area also creates a larger needle thread loop, which is more easily grabbed by the hook. These features prevent skipped stitches even with highly elastic fabrics. The reinforced blade helps to reduce needle breakage and achieves particularly straight stitches. The wider and shorter eye, combined with a wider thread groove, means that the Super Stretch Needles can be used with thicker sewing threads. This places less stress on the threads so that they no longer break.
The medium ball point is suitable for all types of knitted fabric, because it displaces the loops, thus preventing damage to the material. Instead of nickel, the needle has a chrome plating and is more resistant to abrasion. These needles can be identified quickly and easily as special needles by the white colored ring on the shoulder of the Super Stretch Needle.
These are optimal for both woven and stretch, making it a great all-purpose needle for your Janome overlocker (i.e- its the only one you need)
