Ball Point (BP) needles are designed to alleviate making holes in knit or loosely woven materials. The cross fibers which constitute the knit or loosely woven materials are relatively far apart as compared to those in tightly woven material. When a needle with a standard "sharp" point encounters one of those fibers in penetrating the fabric, it cuts right through the fiber. This creates a hole in the fabric. The Ball Point needle pushes aside the fiber it encounters in penetration and thereby avoids making a damaging hole in the fabric.
These needles have a flat side ground on the needle shank to assure proper alignment with the point of the sewing hook. (Intended only for machines designed for Flat Shank needles).
These are standard home sewing machine needles with a flat shank and a regular size eye for most home sewing machines and home sewer based embroidery and quilting machines including :
Needle System* : 15X1, HAX1
These needles also cross to these different needle systems : : 130/705H, SY2020, SY2031, 206X15, PFX130, canu 22:15
*A needle system is a group of needles made to fit specific sewing machines. All needles in a system are of the same length and shank size, but are of various diameters. Lower size numbers are narrower or thinner needles used for lighter materials. Higher size numbers indicate a needle of thicker diameter, used for heavier materials. Match your needle system to your machine, then the size of the needle to the product you are sewing.
You'll receive 10 packs of needles. Each pack contains 10 needles.
