These beautiful extreme knitting needles take the hard work out of knitting large projects though their unique in-the-round design. Joining the needles with rope allows their length to be shorter which makes them lighter and more manageable, while still providing the benefit of longer knitting needles.
Designed by Woolly Wagtail and crafted in Australia, these needles are suited to small and large projects, everything from scarves to badminton nets!
The tips are made from various woods that are hand turned and waxed, making each set unique. The cotton rope is marine grade and made in Australia. High grade PVC pipe is used for the needle shaft, providing a durable, gloss finish.
These needles can be perfectly matched with Woolly Wagtail hand dyed sari silk for creating a light weight extreme knit. You can also knit with cut fabric like we do for our Woolly Wagtail linen scarves. Also consider using cord, leather, wool rovings or various jumbo yarns.
A cotton, drawstring carry bag is included for keeping your needles with you wherever you go.
Although they are a serious knitting tool, these needles also make a great decorator item. In the home of Woolly Wagtail they take pride of place in the lounge room next to a few giant balls of wool!
