|Needles, Needles, Needles
What type of needles to use when using Metallic threads? Kreinik Manufacturing recommends the following needle sizes when using various metallic threads.
NOTE: Always use a needle large enough to open the hole in the fabric and allow the thread to go through easily without binding. Let your needle hang frequently so the thread can untwist.
