Lightweight and springy, these Clover sock needles are like knitting with air. Pair with wool or cotton type yarns for a calm and comfortable knit.
Named 'Takumi' after the Japanese word for artisan, these double pointed needles are made from lightweight bamboo. Knitting with them, they feel warm and smooth, while still retaining a lightly 'woody' texture that keeps small stitches secure. There is a pliability in the hand which could feel fragile at times, but is more like the needles are willingly flexing to allow the knitter to secure a difficult stitch.
The tips of the Takumi needles are soft and rounded; ideal for most yarns as they are not prone to splitting the fibres. Sizes are laser printed onto the needle shaft to ensure they do not rub off, and to enable easy identification.
