Sewing Machine Needles

Using the correct sewing machine needle can make all the difference to give you the best results for each and every sewing project. Choosing the appropriate size helps prevent the frustration of torn threads, uneven stitches or a broken needle. The subtle differences in needle thickness, length, shape of the point and size of the eye are all important factors in selecting the perfect needle for the fabric type and the thread you are planning to use.

Pony machine needles are designed for household sewing machines and made from high quality carbon steel wire. Needle sizing is in metric and indicates the needle diameter, eg; 0,8 mm. This size is suitable for delicate fabrics such as silk and chiffon as small needle sizes are recommended to ensure the point causes minimal piercing of the fabric so as not to distort the warp and weft.

For various applications and projects choose the appropriate needle size. 




These needles are designed for general sewing work on regular domestic sewing machines.


Jersey / Ballpoint

Ideal for use on stretch and synthetic fabrics, these  needles have rounded points that  penetrate through the knitted surface without piercing the thread structure. 



For fabrics where a ballpoint needle skips stitches or doesn’t produce a regular stitch length, the stretch needle is the answer. With rounded points, these slip through elastic fabrics and stretchy knitwear.
