Light Ball Point This point type is intended to gently spread the yarns in a knitted fabric, rather than cutting them. This size high quality chrome-plated needle is ideal for fabrics knitted with lightweight yarn and for executing small lettering or fine detail. Works well with fine, light thread types such as size 60. May also be used with woven materials that are not tightly woven.
Use this needle with heavy knitted materials like Afghans and other bulky knits. Also suitable for heavy, loosely woven fabrics such as woolens.
