Schmetz Microtex Needles are available in various sizes (cross sectional diameter). Sizes start from 60nm (0.6mm thickness) up to 90nm (0.9mm thickness).
The size you require is basically dependant on the weight / material thickness. The popular Microtex size tends to be 70 with the focus being on precise stitching. As a guide sizes 60s & 70s tend to be used on light/medium weight silk fabrics.
For ease of identification Schmetz stamp the needle size on the shank of every needle they manufacture.
