Sewing Machine Needles System 130 #16 (Pack 10) are the most common needle type and can be used for all general sewing. These Schmetz round point needles have a sharp point and rounded shank with a flat side to fit in most home sewing machines. Burrs on needle shanks can be problematic and cause separation of threads and skipped stitches. These high quality needles have completely smooth shanks with no burrs.
Needle sizes are listed two ways, by size and measurement, so a #16 needle is the same as a 100. For more information on needle and thread choices, see the Thread and Needle Recommendations document.
