We carry four types of Sewing Machine needles: Embroidery; Metallic; Quilting and Universal. The descriptions below are given to help you decide which needle you need for your project. Click here for more information on choosing the right needle. In general, the finer the fabric, the finer the needle and thread you should use. If your thread is shredding, the needle is too small.
Most needles use the two number measuring system which refer to the size of the needle shaft diameter. In sewing machine needle parlance, the smaller the number, the smaller the needle. A 14/90 is larger than a 8/60. Schmetz does have a color coding system. You can download the pdf here: http://www.schmetzneedles.com/pdf/SCHMETZ_Color_Code_Chart.pdf
