Needle Options

... and when to use them!

Ever wonder, am I using the correct needle for the job? 

Here are some quick notes about needles.

SHARP POINT or SHARP TIP NEEDLE:  

The standard needle used in embroidery is a sharp tip 75/11.

 

The 75/11 works best with the standard 40 wt. embroidery thread. This will work for most products and fabric types such as twill, fleece, and t-shirts. 


 

BALLPOINT NEEDLE:

Ballpoint needles can help prevent snagging on knit fabrics such as pique, loose knits, and beanies.

 

 

SHARP, CLEAN, SMALL LETTERING:

And finally, for a sharper look, or for cleaner small lettering, we suggest you try the 65/9 needle with 60 wt. thread. 


 

REMEMBER FOR BEST RESULTS: 

When ordering a design, always let us know what part of the logo you plan on using 60 wt. threat and 65/9 needles, so we can adust the density. 

* EXPERT TIP:   Always keep different spare needles on hand even if you don’t use them often. They could come handy in a pinch!
