ELx705 SUK CF are popular overlock & coverstitch needles. Please Check your owner’s manual! Here’s how these needles are different to normal sewing needles (130/705 H):
- Overlock needles have a groove on the front and back sides of the blade to reduce skipped stitches. The second long groove is necessary to create chain stitches like overlock or coverstitch.
- They have increased strength due to a reinforced blade leading to less needle breakage and straighter stitches.
- A medium ball point suitable for many knit fabrics.
- They are Chrome Finished (CF), increasing wear resistance.
