Bamboo Knitting Needles

How about bamboo knitting needles or crochet hooks if you are looking for a unique gift to give to a friend or family member who loves to knit?

Or you live with someone who is a keen knitter and you want to silence the pins that are continuously clicking away in the background?

Why not consider giving a gift to knit that is made from this environmentally friendly material?

Benefits

Bamboo knitting needles come in a wide range of sizes that match those types made from more conventional materials.

  • They are perfect for a wide range of projects and styles used in this craft.
  • They are extremely comfortable to use for long periods of time.
  • They are very lightweight in comparison meaning you can comfortably knit away for hours on end.
  • They are really quiet, no more noises that disturb the rest of your family and friends when you are clicking away with your metal pins.
  • They improve with age by growing smoother to the touch the more they are used.
  • They are warm to hold, no cold like metal versions.

Choice
