"What is the difference between ballpoint and stretch needles?" Ballpoint needles are designed for use with knits, as they have rounded tips that slip in between fibres rather than piercing them. Stretch needles are for things like swimwear and lycra fabrics, or if you are sewing elastic directly on to fabric.
