These needles are one step up from the Universal Point 60/8. They are super sharp and perfect for any fine sewing. Use on knits, microfibers, polyester, silk, fine fabrics, foils, artificial leather and coated materials. The very thin acute point creates beautiful top stitching and perfectly straight stitches for quilt piecing when precision is paramount. These are the ones we use with the Madeira Thread to roll the edges of silk and chiffon scarfs. Size 60/8, 5 per card.
