Notes About Needle Types:
How do you choose the right needle size? A good rule of thumb is the finer the fabric, the smaller the needle (the lower the number).
Example: A light weight rayon or voile, you would want to try a Microtex or Universal needle in size 70/10 or 80/12. Experiment with the different sizes and types to see what gives you the best results.
