They start out softer and require less conditioning so they won’t “stick” to yarn as much.
For your more rustic yarns, or if you don’t mind conditioning often - the ones included in the original kit work fine, but these new extras work better for finer yarns.
*Please note, the newer Stitch Holder Kits now contain these lower maintenance cords - we only stock the newer Kits.
No more ugly live stitches on scraps of fiddly yarn! We love this kit! The threaded needles allow you to knit right off of your sexy leather cord.
This Kit contains:
1 x Long Cord – 59"/150 cm
2 x Short Cords – 29.5"/75 cm
The needles are designed to be threaded from the top (rather than through an eye as with a traditional needle), so you may need to snip the end of your leather cord at an angle to help attach it to the needle. For more instructions, see Julie's handy little video here.
