Rosewood DPNs

It is with regret that we have to announce that CITES regulations prevent us from acquiring further stock of these beautiful knitting needles.

We await the delivery of a new alternative dark hardwood which we feel sure will be well received.

These knitting needles are a joy to use, light and flexible (in the smaller sizes) with a sharp tip. They have been lovingly polished to enhance the natural wood grain and have a polyurethane top coat for a smooth finish.

These needles are all hand-made by a micro-company from responsibly sourced Indian rosewood and as such there will be slight variations which should be considered a characteristic rather than a flaw. They are also hand-stamped with metric and USA equivalent sizes.

We offer three lengths of DPN (double pointed needle), ideal for socks, glove fingers, hats, sweaters, jumpers, pullovers, sleeves and many other projects. Knitting in the round is hugely popular but not everyone enjoys using circular needles, sometimes, knitting sleeves or the tops of hats is just plain easier using DPNs.

Here you will find sets of 5 DPNs (double pointed needles):

• 5in (12.75cm) long from 2.75mm (UK 12 / US 2) to 5mm (UK 6 / US 8)

• 7in (17.75cm) long from 3.25mm (UK 10 / US 3) to 10mm (UK 000 / US 15) and

• 10in (25.5cm) long from 2.75mm (UK 12 / US 2) to 10mm (UK 000 / US 15).

This is the last of the remaining rosewood stock, please note, there will be no more once this has gone.
