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 an extra long eye. Used for heavy, multiple, or poor quality threads. Achieve perfectly straight stitch lines or even stitches when using a stright stitch plate.
