Ok, so for us, there is no other needle recommendation. Seriously - ChiaoGoo (pronounced Chow-Goo) are our absolute favourite brand of knitting needles, hands down, and we've tried them all!
Even if you're not a fan of metal needles, we encourage you to give them a go, because they aren't like the others. And we love their interchangeable range the most, because of the incredible curl-free cables, and the perfectly sharp (not too sharp) tips.
And just to be perfectly honest, they are a real pain to stock, and the margins we make make them barely worth it, but we continue to stock them, because they are the best. And we are here to bring you the best.
Unlike a lot of manufacturers of stitch stuff, needles and hooks are all ChiaoGoo do, and they are obsessive about it. ChiaoGoo needles and hooks are exquisitely engineered using the very best materials. They are supremely durable and light weight, and a dream to knit with!
Like we said, we’ve really tried all the knitting needles, and it’s fair to say that we’re right at home with ChiaoGoo needles – so there’s no need to look elsewhere!
ChiaoGoo interchangeable needles are perfectly balanced, offering durability, lightweight construction and just enough sharpness in the tip. Plus, given that we’re an official stockist, we’re prepared to put our money where our mouth is!
We also love the story behind ChiaoGoo. They’re a family-run business based out of Troy, Michigan, but with roots in Linan - also known as “The Bamboo Capital of China”.
Founded by three brothers, the grandfather of the siblings inspired what would become a lifelong obsession with designing and manufacturing the perfect knitting and crochet tools. A talented bamboo craftsman, he would travel from town to town with a bamboo tool kit, making household goods for locals.
The boys’ father followed in their grandfather’s footsteps and built a workshop in the early 1980s, producing similar household goods, but (importantly) the primary product sold was bamboo knitting needles… The rest is history!
