Are you allergic to the metal in earrings?
Have you ever noticed your fingers itch after you sew?
Or that your eyes get red when sewing (from rubbing your eyes with those same itchy fingers)?
You may be one of the millions of people allergic to nickel. Maybe you even know you are allergic to nickel…because you cannot wear cheap jewelry without getting irritation.
Well, most sewing needles are nickel plated. That means the time you spend sewing using traditional sewing needles is exposing you to an allergen.
Traditional sewing needles are made with nickel-plated iron which tends to be brittle and will snap and break. 100% stainless steel needles never rust and are more flexible under pressure. And hypoallergenic.
