Of course the colour is what first catches your eye. But, the beauty is more than skin deep. The layers of laminated birch give the needles a strength that is missing in regular wooden needles. The stability allowed us to shape sharp points- particularly nice for lace knitting. It also made small sizes more durable and resistant to breakage. Being wood, the burnished surface has a slight grip so slick yarns like mohair and angora dont slip off at the wrong time. This quality also makes them an excellent choice for beginning knitters, who often have trouble keeping stitches on the needles. Available in US sizes 4-17. Set of two. Needle length is 4 1/2".
Interchangeable cables are available in 24", 32", 40", 47" and 60" lengths. The Options Harmony Wood Interchangeable Needle Set includes sizes US 4 (3.50mm) through US 11 (8.00mm) plus two each of the 24" and 32" cables in a handy zippered clear case with pockets for needle tip storage.
