Sewing Machine Needles 135x16 DI #20 are specialty needles designed for working with leather. These high quality leather needles by Schmetz are optimized for heavy, dry and hard leather. The blade cuts fibers so that the needle does not have to separate them. These are industrial needles that have shanks that are completely round.

Needle sizes are listed two ways, by size and measurement, so a #20 needle is the same as a 125. For more information on needle and thread choices, see the Thread and Needle Recommendations document.

Great Find for Upholstery

These are the perfect needles to use for sewing upholstery fabrics that are very thick. I bought them for sewing thick leather and have been very pleased with my choice.

Game changer

This is a game changer for sewing vinyl. Although it's meant for leather, I get much better results using it on vinyl.
