• Size 75 embroidery needle is a good choice for many fabrics with a 40-weight thread.
  • Size 90 embroidery, metallica, ballpoint, microtex or topstitch needle may be preferable for some threads or fabrics. Avoid damage to fabrics by using a new needle of a size no bigger than necessary. Use a separate needle for metallics as the thread wears a groove in the needle that can cause other threads to shred or break.
