Einfache Nadel …3STK. There are no further instructions on the package, a green paper pouch with a picture of, what else, sewing machine needles.
Einfache nadel means “simple needle” (single needle, as opposed to a double needle) and it sounds like some of the packaging for Organ needles. Does it have a foil packet with 10 needles inside?
All home sewing machines in the last 45 years have used the same needle system (which specifies length from the clamp to the eye). It’s variously called HAx1, 15x1H, 15×1, 130/705H, SY2020, SY2031, 206×15, PFx13 (Yeah, I know, but there are historical reasons for this apparent idiocy).
Needle size is measured on the blade of the needle, the thicker part of the needle between the eye and the shank that you insert into the needle clamp. Thicker needles for thicker fabrics, thinner needles for thinner fabrics.
If you look carefully at the shank of the needle with some magnification, you can usually read the name of the maker and the needle size. Here are some photos of needles: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/1720679… These are all the same needle system, but increasing sizes. Singer sizes their needles by 8/10/12/14/16 — metric sizes are used in most of the rest of the world;
Singer 8 = size 60 = blade diameter of 0.60mm
Singer 10 = size 70 = blade diameter of 0.70mm
Singer 12 = size 80= blade diameter of 0.80 mm
Singer 14 = size 90 = blade diameter of 0.90 mm
Singer 16 = size 100 = blade diameter of 1.00 mm
You can either take the packet of needles to a sewing machine shop and someone can match them for you, or you can look in the sewing machine manual and it will tell you what sizes the machine can use. Most machines can take at least 8/60 through 16/100

\What our team says
Can someone tell me what size sewing machine needle this is?
Sewing can be a tedious and time-consuming process, but with the right tools and supplies, it can be made much easier. In this article, we’ll be discussing some of the most important sewing machine needles and their sizes. By understanding the different types of needles and their corresponding sizes, you can get started sewing without any trouble at all!
What is the difference between a standard size sewing machine needle and a specialty size?
When it comes to sewing, the right tool for the job is essential. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced seamstress, you’ll need the right size machine needle to make your projects go smoothly.
Here’s a breakdown of the different types of sewing needles and their respective uses:
Standard Size Sewing Machine Needles: These are the most common type of needle and are used by most beginners. They’re usually made from metal and have a diameter of about 20mm.
Specialty Size Sewing Machine Needles: These are designed for specific purposes, like lace work or fabric ribbon embroidery. They often have a smaller diameter (15-17mm) and are best used with specialty machines like sergers or Janome sewers.
If you’re unsure which size needle to buy, it’s best to consult your sewing machine’s owner’s manual or contact your local sewing store for assistance.
What are some of the benefits of using a specialty size needle?
There are many benefits to using a specialty size needle. For one, they’re often more accurate and efficient when sewing fabrics with delicate fibers. Additionally, specialty needles can help reduce the chance of fabric snagging or pilling.
How to determine the size of your sewing machine needle
There are a few things you can do to determine the size of your sewing machine needle. One way is to look at the size of the fabric you will be using. Some machines come with multiple sizes of needles and fabric bobbins, so you can try them all out and see which gives the best results.
Another way to determine the size of your sewing machine needle is to use a measuring tape. Measure the circumference of the needle’s head (the bit that sticks out from the machine). Multiply that number by .078 to get the size of the needle in millimeters.
Thank you for your question! This is a size 10 needle.
