Schmetz Universal Twin Needle 2.5/80

Twin needles are actually two needles mounted on one shaft. It is used to create two rows of stitches simultaneiously using two spools of thread and one bobbin thread.

This creates a faux-Coverstitch look and is a great way to finish the hem of your handmade clothing.

This 'universal' twin needle has a slightly rounded point and is a great general purpose twin needle which can be used for either woven or knit fabric.

I like this smaller size twin needle for topstitching - great for topstitching the neck binding/band on your Dolman tee/dress, Raglan romper or other knit creations.
