Triple needles are actually three needles mounted on one shaft and are used to create three rows of stitches at the same time. These needles are especially nice to use for heirloom and decorative stitching and anywhere else that may require multiple, uniform stitching rows. A sewing machine with zigzag capabilities and front-to-back threading is required. Universal point, size 80, with a total width of 3.0mm. 1 per pack.
