Surina Wood Handmade knitting Needles
Our Very own Surina Wood Knitting Needles...
What is Surina Wood, anyway?
Surina Wood is obtained from plantations around Sundarban, India. The tree from which Surina wood is taken is locally known as "the elegant tree" -- with good reason. These trees are tall and very straight. They have tiny branches, and they produce a wood which is hard yet light in weight, light pink in color, and very suitable for woodworking.
In Kolkata (Calcutta), highly trained and skilled artisans turn this elegant wood into exceptional knitting needles, highlighting natural grain, hyper smoothness of the wood, and handmade perfect finish. The polish is produced without the use of any harmful chemicals or agents. No other wood can provide the look that Surina can. The needles are perfect in gauge and length, and they are incredibly beautiful.
