The New Purple Tip Needles
These prevent skipped stitches on heavy fabrics.
Purple Tip Needles are designed to prevent skipped stitches with heavy fabrics, including knits, while doing sewing and embroidering. They feature a ball point tip to prevent fabric thread breakage and a special cobra shaped head to form a proper needle thread loop so that it prevents skipped stitches caused by the fluctuation of the fabric.
Purple Tip Needles are recommended for:
Embroidery with a high density design and/or thick fabric
Fluffier thread like cotton
Quilting multiple layers which normally resist needle penetration
Sewing knit, tricot, and synthetic fabrics like thick polyester
Purple Tip Needle - Has a ball point with a special "cobra" head. Recommended for high density designs and thick fabrics.
