The world's most delicate stitch

The Merrow MG-2DNR-1

Say hello to the Merrow MG-2DNR-1, also known as the
MicroPurl. Smaller than any other available stitch on the market, the MicroPurl provides an unmatched less-than-one-millimeter (1/32”) overlock design. This stitch size, before only achievable by hand, is subtle in clothing, ideal for lingerie, baby garments, and ultra-delicate medical equipment.

The MicroPurl machine sews at 5500 rpm, using a specially-designed apparatus to roll edges in a miniature overlock hem. The MicroPurl machine, part of Merrow’s Decorative line, has a glossy maroon coating to distinguish it from traditional overlock machines. MicroPurl prevents fraying on delicate fabrics like chiffon, silk, lace, and more. MicroPurl redefines “small” for delicate edging.
