SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade is the perfect sewing partner. Chrome resists heat and wear. Chrome will stay cool longer with less stitch distortion and aids the thread to pass through the needle eye with less friction and less heat build-up. Chrome also allows the needle to pass through the fabric with less resistance. Features a medium ball point, special eye, and scarf. Used with elastic materials and highly elastic knitwear. The medium ball point, specially designed eye, and scarf prevent skipped stitches.
