Needle Facts: SCHMETZ Color Codes

So little changes about needles, so the news of SCHMETZ color coded needles is HUGE!  Most needles will have two bands of color – the top band to identify needle type and the lower band identifies size.  What great news!  Take a look at the chart or download it from our home page for easy reference.


The Universal needle will have just the one band of color for size.  Look for SCHMETZ color coded needles in your local stores.  Yahoo!  Happy New Year!

    Thank you! The color coding is perfect for aging eyes. We may not be able to read the tiny numbers but we can certainly see the colors. This is so helpful.
