Leather Point (LR) needles are designed to cut though the leather making the smallest holes in leather. When a needle with a standard “spear point” encounters leather or man made fabrics, eg PVC, it cuts right through the leather. This creates a small hole in the leather. The spear point or diamond point needle cuts though the pvc / leather it encounters in penetration and thereby avoids making a damaging hole in the leather. Also using spear point needles reduces the heat of the needle as there is less friction when the needle penetrates the leather.

A needle system is a group of needles made to fit specific sewing machines. All needles in a system are of the same length and shank size, but are of various diameters. Lower size numbers are narrower or thinner needles used for lighter materials. Higher size numbers indicate a needle of thicker diameter, used for heavier materials. Match your needle system to your machine, then the size of the needle to the product you are sewing.
