Finding the perfect needle for your fabric
Why should you change the needles in your sewing machine? The fabric type is the main reason. Another argument is the type of processing. Whether cotton, jersey, leather, denim or satin: Every material behaves differently when it comes to processing. If you would like neat results, first check the type of fabric and use the best needle for sewing. You should do this, because the qualities of these needles were produced to suit the fabric you are working with.
In general, we can say: the finer the fabric, the thinner the needle should be. In our online shop, you will find sewing machine needles for light, medium and heavy fabrics in the standard sizes from 60 to 110. These are well packaged and come in many different varieties. Even when you’re using the best quality, the sewing machine needle is still a consumable, and should be replaced every so often. You have a replacement handy right away, just in case the needle breaks while you’re sewing. Simply pick up a new needle and you can get back into your creative flow.
These needles are a must-have in every sewing kit
As a beginner, it’s worthwhile investing in universal needles in various sizes. Then you can sew almost all natural and synthetic fabrics. These belong in your basic equipment, even for the pros. Discover the world of sewing. The universal needles will make your first projects so much easier.
If you’re already familiar with the various fabrics and have done some initial sewing practice, give it a try. Don’t be afraid of stretch material. With a super stretch needle HAx1SP, you’ll be able to handle the stretch fabric. These special needles have a moderate spherical tip. The fabric fibres are pushed to the side and not pierced, as they are with universal needles. This prevents holes in the fabric caused by the stretch needle. If you would like to create elastic stitches or a hem seam for elasticated clothing, you should use the twin needle. The result: a well-fitting top that looks like you bought it in a shop.
If you love quilting and embroidery, you can also delight in the perfect sewing machine needles. The top stitch has an extra smooth threadline. This is especially important for embroidery and decorative work. Our titanium needles are very durable, even in extremely demanding conditions. Try it out.
Sewing especially fine fabrics
If you have chosen a very thin material for your sewing project, sewing machine needles in sizes from 60 to 80 are just the thing. The fine needles guarantee a precise seam and tidy seams. You notice sewing errors very quickly, especially with fine fabric. This is why it’s worthwhile to switch to the ideal needle. Thanks to its especially thin top, a micro needle or a silk crepe needle HAx1GT is perfect for achieving a very fine sewing performance. With the blue tip 75 you can transform fabrics such as handkerchief cloth, wool crêpe, cotton satin and other delicate materials into fine works of art.
Stable sewing machine needles for thick material
When working with heavy fabrics, even universal needles can quickly hit a wall. This is why we also offer needles in sizes 100 and 110 which are more than a match for the coarse material. Are you sewing jeans? Then choose a strong denim needle to work with. If you’re working with heavy silk, heavy artificial silk, heavy batiste, heavy linen, heavy poplin or heavy corduroy, your sewing experience will be made so much easier when you use a sewing machine needle for woven fabric.
With artificial and real leather, you are faced with another challenge. The extremely stable material needs especially sharp needles. This tip of a leather needle is similar to a small knife.
Practical needle sets – you always have the right needle to hand
Generally, you receive sewing machine needles in functional storage boxes with five needles of the same type. The exception to this is the twin needle: You can order these individually or as a twin set.
At W6, we can also offer you practical needle sets. Our jeans/universal/stretch combo of ten needles is an excellent basic set. You will receive your sewing tools in various sizes for working with most fabrics, from light fabric right up to the heavy fabrics such as denim. And with woven fabric in mind, you will also find a set of ten needles in the sizes 70 to 100 in our online shop. With the set of 20 needles, you’ll be perfectly equipped: with sewing machine needles for woven fabric, denim and super stretch, bring on the next sewing project, whatever fabric type you choose.
