Perfect for sewing leggings/swimmers hems and waistband. Optionally used for top stitching bindings (band binding option) for skater dress.
Twin needles can be used in either size according to your preference, they both perform the same function it is just whatever you prefer visually.
I like narrow (2.5mm) hems for leggings and wide (4.0) hems for waistbands. Same thing for swimmers, I prefer the narrow for leg finishing and wide for waistbands. The narrower needle will give less tunneling between stitches on lighter weight fabrics.

Absolutely perfect, it’s amazing the difference new needles make.
Love using these needles to give a quality finish to my garments. The best surprise was getting and email to see if there was anything I needed to add to my pre-order before it posted. Such wonderful customer service!
