Wood has long been a material of choice for knitting needles and crochet hooks; smooth, warm to the touch and well defined tips which aid use. They are beautiful to look at too! The choice range is bigger than it has ever been too, from Rosewood, a rich dark brown like molten chocolate to the now famous Symphonie needles and hooks, layers of different coloured wood pressed together then shaped. Bamboo remains favourite with its' natural flexibility which helps stitch transfer.
New kids on the market now include Maple, a light coloured, light weight wood, tough and durable and olive wood, a high grained beautiful wood with a distinctive aroma made by Addi, a german company of distinction, coming soon to this site!
