Schmetz Universal Twin Needle 4.0/90

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 wider size twin needle for hemming knit garments. Works great for the hem of the Dolman tee/dress as well as hemming the sleeves and legs of the Raglan romper or other knit creations.
