-Unlike other needles, a ballpoint needle has a purposely rounded tip. This is because the needle is intended for stretch knit fabrics, and the dull tip allows it to pierce those fabrics without snagging or pulling.+Unlike other needles, a ballpoint needle has a purposely rounded tip. This is because the needle is intended for stretch knit fabrics, and the dull tip allows it to pierce those fabrics without snagging or pulling. If you are trying to sew woven fabrics and there is a ballpoint needle in the machine, simply replace it with a universal needle and put the ballpoint back. Do not throw these needles into the trash unless they are bent. They are supposed to be rounded and dull.
