A very slim needle with a thin shaft that helps to make very straight stitches. It was developed for the modern micro-fibre, polyester and high-thread-count fabrics used today. The point is very sharp, thus the name, but because of this, it is a bit more fragile and needs to be changed more regularly. This is a great needle for piecing high thread count fabrics like batiks, silks, and micro-fibres. It is also used for beautiful topstitching or edge stitching. Size 80, with 5 per pack.
