Examples include rubber, foam, or synthetic goods. They're also suitable for when residue is stick- ing to the needle surface or the eye. Cool-Sew needles feature a non-stick surface on the needle and inside the eye. Cool-Sew needles work for sewing on vinyl, glued materials, foam, nylon, or anything made of synthetics, says the company. Each box comes packed with 100 needles.

It peels cold and needs to be covered with Teflon and repressed for five seconds at the same temperature and pressure.
