The Schmetz Super Stretch Needle has a special flat shank which allows the needle to be closer to the hook. Additionally, the special design of the scarf area produces a larger needle thread loop which can easily be picked up by the hook. These features prevent skip stitches even on highly elastic fabrics. The re-inforced blade causes less needle breakage and creates straighter stitches.
As a result of the wider and shorter eye in combination with the widened groove the Super Stretch Needle is able to sew with thicker sewing threads than the Universal or the Stretch Needle. The threads are less stressed and do not break.
It has a medium ball point which is suitable for all kinds of knits because it deplaces the meshes, avoiding damage to the material. Instead of nickel, this needle has a chrome coating which makes it more resistant against wear,
The white coloured ring at the shoulder of the Super Stretch Needle helps to simplify and quickly identify this needle as a special needle.
