LYKKE Indigo 24" Fixed Circular needles. Named after the Norwegian word for happiness, LYKKE Crafts combine high quality materials and thoughtful design to produce beautiful, durable, happy-making knitting needles. LYKKE Driftwood Needles are made of strong Birch Wood which is smooth and light. With their warm character and blue patina, the Indigo Needles are easy on the hands and the eyes. This Resin Impregnated will not show a hint of wear after weeks of continuous use. The resin fully saturates the birch wood and gives the set its lovely washed look and does not wear off! The color is through and through and guaranteed not to stain your project.
LYKKE stands behind their products and guarantees your set for 5 years against manufacturer's defects! Yarn Loop will always help you handle any returns, but you can also get the return form from lykkecrafts.com
A Note from Rachel: I have been searching for a new needle set to replace my old, cheap set, and was thrilled to stumble across the LYKKE needles! I am a wooden needle gal, and I prefer fine-grained wood with slightly sharp tips. I find that the larger grains tend to create nodules around the tip which will catch ever so slightly with every stitch, especially on old, well-used needles (like my old bamboo needles). I had to get my hands on these needles to see if they fit my qualifications for strong but flexible cords and the perfect tip for my not always perfect technique (yes, I do occasionally push the needles with my index finger). Birch wood is my favorite due to it's grain structure, too.
Yarn Loop only stocks the best needles and tests everything in house, so don't fret about which brand or set you want! Still not sure? Contact us and we will walk you through your choices!
