Jeans Needle Schmetz 90/14
Jeans needles have a much stronger shank, and are very good for heavier work.
I use these a lot when doing my heavy applique work as they allow me to
sew through many thickness without breaking so easy.
Of course these are also brilliant for hemming jeans, sewing with heavy
& durable fabrics, for you may be sewing through many layers at a time.
When you're needing a needle, to do heavier work, where you know you need the extra strength within the shank of the needle, then these are a fantastic choice.
