Our 6″ (15 cm) patina, bamboo double points are made of Moso bamboo and have precisely tapered, hand-crafted tips. Bamboo is known for its flexibility and strength which makes it an excellent choice for Double Points. The size is permanently laser imprinted on each needle. Sizes 1 (2.25 mm) through 2 (2.75 mm) come with six needles per set while the others come with 5 DPN's per set. Bamboo does not stain well, so thermal heat is used to darken the color. There is no need to worry about staining your projects!

ChiaoGoo was born in China where manufacturing began in the 1980's using bamboo knitting needles as the main source of income for the Zheng family. The maternal figure was in constant need of better needles and is the driving force behind ChiaoGoo, which means "highly Skillful and crafty lady". Leon Zheng, one of four brothers, started the distribution center in Troy, MI so that these wonderful goods could also be designed and marketed in America. His distribution center is responsible for all needle designs since 2005 as well as equipment and manufacturing upgrades. While the needles are still made in China, this company is of both China and the United States.
Every ChiaoGoo product purchased through Yarn Loop carries a product lifetime guarantee from manufacturing defect.
