SCHMETZ® Color Code Chart

Did you know that SCHMETZ® is color coding their home sewing needles (needle system 130/705 H)? Most, but not all, household needles now have two bands of color. The top color band indicates needle type and the lower color band indicates needle size. Due to special features, SCHMETZ® Universal, Hemstitch, Double Eye, and Quick Threading needles only have one color band to identify needle size.
