The stitch itself is noticably better than imitation purl stitches. A Merrow purl stitch is tighter, it hangs straight on delicates, it appears almost as an extension of the material on which it’s sewn. A Merrow purl stitch is perhaps the most elegant stitch in the world.
The precision of the MG-2DNR-1 is literally unmatched in the sewing machine world. Because of the unique cam drive and the hand crafted looper carrier and needle plate, this Merrow Machine sews a more delicate edge than any other sewing machine manufactured today. At high speed the machine maintains the critical tolerances between needle, needle plate and looper, allowing the product to look beautiful every time.
Often used in garment factories, sample rooms and custom tailor shops, this machine is now finding it’s way into high-end cottage industries and low volume, high value production facilities.
