Following on from international success of LYKKE's Driftwood (birch wood) needles, LYKKE have now produced the worlds smoothest Bamboo interchangeable needles!
Hewn from natural bamboo with a smooth, clear resin coating, these needles have been artfully finished with hint of green to accent the grain of the bamboo. The connection end of the needles are a deep, rich shiny green. The end result is both aesthetically pleasing and super functional!
All LYKKE needles have both metric and US sizes etched on the needles to ensure long-term readability.
The set comes is a high quality natural jute handcrafted case with extra pockets for cords, stoppers, markers etc.

"Our beautiful needles and hooks are handcrafted and assembled in a scenic region of Kathmandu, Nepal. Our production routines do not rely on mechanized automation. Instead, our products benefit from the skilled and graceful human touch of our skilled Nepalese craftspeople. As global demand is increasing for our products, this community of skilled workers is growing too, expanding our output capacity.
"We are happy and proud to support the growth and development of the local economy in Nepal. Revenue from the sale of LYKKE Crafts products also serves to Make Happy in that community through varied benefit programs for the workers, their children, and the community.
"We appreciate and value the opportunity to employ this growing community of skilled craftspeople in Nepal and happily embrace the natural, human pace of production. We thank LYKKE Crafts' customers for their patience, consideration and support."
I adore Lykke and have numerous fixed circulars plus the Driftwood 5" interchangeable set. I decided to treat myself to the Gove 3.5 set as prefer the shorter ones for cuffs / neck...view moreband. They are equally lovely, I'm not sure they are quite as smooth to work with as the birch but any difference is minimal. I've tried most well known brands of needles as I have complex hand issues / multiple surgeries and whilst in general I prefer wood Lykke are the most comfortable to use. I think I may pop the den's on my wish list and break my magic loop habit too. view less
