KNITTING NEEDLES | Brittany Wood Handmade knitting Needles
Brittany: Great needle for beginners or knitters on a budget
Strong, affordable, comfortable and sustainably made needles, great for beginners or knitters on a budget. A good set of knitting needles becomes a good friend, and our Brittany wooden knitting needles are a very good needle. Made of fine Birch, polished to a smooth, tactile finish, not too slippery, not too grabby, warm to the touch and easy to handle. In two lengths, single or double point, they'll help make completing any project easier. Crochet hooks too.
Why buy Brittany needles? Probably the best reason has to do with the benefits of wood. Wood is warm, smooth and soft. It won't drain heat from sensitive fingers the way aluminum and plastic needles do. We have many comments from arthritis patients and their doctors that they wouldn't be knitting if it weren't for wooden needles.
Birch is a superior wood for this purpose, its tensile strength and stability maintains size, resists warping and allows for smoothness of finish no other needle can provide.
Brittany: Sustainable knitting needles
Wood is our greatest renewable natural resource. It is environmentally friendly; it's recyclable, biodegradable and durable; when it is no longer needed it can be returned to the earth. All wood used by Brittany comes from strictly regulated forests or small woodland owners in the United States ensuring proper environmental logging practices and selective cutting for maximum reforestation.
Brittany: How they got started
Gene and Galer Barnes started BRITTANY in their garage in Northern California 41 years ago. Chris and Michri worked with his parents for 15 years and officially took over the business in 2013. The family does all the manufacturing - which ensures consistent quality.
Brittany cares about the environment, the wood and the trees that make up their needles, and the world that surrounds their business. It's one of the reasons we LOVE Brittany and their products.
