The two needles are attached to a single crossbar. Stitching two rows simultaneously, they create decorative effects for heirloom sewing, pintucks, fancy hems, and other decorative effects.
The two numbers in the size of the needle indicate the space between the tips and the size of the needles, respectively. For instance, a 3.0mm/80 needle is two size 80 needles spaced 3mm apart.
Larger, specially coated eye accommodates metallic thread flow at all stitch speeds. Large groove in shaft prevents thread breaks.
