Established in 1964 as K.O. Needles Co. Ltd., Orange Needles has long been producing high-quality industrial sewing needles in Korea.
It is a common mistake to think that the same sewing machine needle works for everything you want to sew. The finish will not be right unless the correct sewing machine needle is used. This depends on the type of fabric, the thickness of the fabric, the type of seam you want, and the type of thread. At our online store CutSew, we have a variety of Orange needles to choose from. Refer to your instruction manual to verify the correct needle for your machine. If you have further questions about certain operations, then just give us a call.
You can count on the long-standing reputation of orange needles with your industrial sewn projects. We have the needles orange recognized by their name and alias so you can match them no matter what needle family you may have previously used. Needle size is generally a number such as 11/70 or 14/90.
Orange sewing machine needles are identified by numbers. Needle size is generally a number such as 11/70 or 14/90. Smaller numbers identify the finest needles, and the highest identify the thickest. For instance, a 12 is good for medium-weight material, whereas a 15 will work better for denim. Choosing the right Orange needle depends on the fabric you will be sewing.
Orange Sewing Machine Needle Types
Selecting the right needle size and point type for your project is imperative to the quality of your stitch. Choosing the wrong type or size may incur problems such as the needle or thread breaking, puckering or wrinkling the fabric, or worse, damaging the material. Sharp points are for woven materials. Ball pints are used for knits. A ballpoint is more common as it pushes material fibers to prevent creating a hole. A high-quality family such as Orange sewing machine needles are indispensable. Choose Orange needles according to the task at hand, to achieve the perfect seam.
Parts of the Orange Needle
To understand when to use each one, the first step is to understand the different parts of an orange needle. We explain below:
• Shank – Inserted into the needle holder and sometimes will have the size stamped here.
• Long Groove – one side, opposite the blade, allows the thread to fall against needle
• Blade – Area above the scarf that determines the number metric – NM
• Scarf –above the eye indicating needle positioning direction and allows the hook to pass
• Eye – the thread enters through this hole. It has an oval shape to facilitate easy passage. The thread must always be narrower than the eye so that it can go through it.
• Tip – the end of the needle. It comes more or less sharpened, depending on the type of needle that is used, and to easily go through the fabric. Selecting the right tip is essential for use in thicker materials such as leather or plastic.
