Not for knits- rather for lightweight woven fabrics including quilting cottons and densely woven synthetic fabrics such as nylon and polyester. The point is more slender than a ballpoint, giving a clean penetration that helps to reduce puckering on quilting cotton, windbreakers, pillows, and hankies. Make the smallest footprint possible on waterproof materials and fragile materials other than knits.
