The most popular needle, the Universal, has an eye that is 40% the width of the blade. Really!
There are three other needles with larger eyes, the Embroidery and even more pronounced is
the elongated eye of the Metallic and Topstitch needles.
Now what does a larger eye mean? There is less friction on the thread as it passes through the eye.
Ever sew with a thread that breaks or tends to shred? Guess what, use a needle with a larger eye.
If you have old thread or maybe a poor quality thread, use a needle with a larger eye.
The thread and needle work hard and fast. Help them out when you can with a larger eye.
