Usually leaves our warehouse on the next business day.

A ball point needle is made especially for stretch and elastic materials and tightly woven fabrics.

The head of the ball point needle has a snake's head shape due to a combination of both a slightly bulged eye and a reduced blade over the eye.  The bulged eye opens a slightly larger space in the material and the thinner blade reduces contact between the needle and the fabric.  This results in a lowering of needle heat up, preventing skip stitches.  The tip is a light ball point to separate the fibers rather than cutting, avoiding needle holes in the fabric.  The scarf of the needle is deeper allowing for a larger loop for forming the stitch, eliminating skipped stitches.  The needle size should be chosen based on the weight of the fabric.
