Sewing Machine Needles SD1 DBx1 #14 (Pack 10) are specialty needles optimized for fine leather or leather clothing. These industrial needles also work well for heavy sailcloth assemblies. The SD1 needles feature a smaller cutting point than the DI needles. SD1 leather needles partially cut, and then push the fibers out of the way.
Needle sizes are listed two ways, by size and measurement, so a #14 needle is the same as a 90. For more information on needle and thread choices, see the Thread and Needle Recommendations document.
