Schmetz Quilting Needles are available in two sizes (cross sectional diameter). Size 75nm (0.75mm thickness) and size 90nm (0.9mm thickness).
As a guide, for general quilting size 90 tends to be the favourite needle choice.
For ease of identification Schmetz stamp the needle size on the shank of every needle they manufacture.
