We are trying these out and have limited quantities currently in stock.
These are really quite wonderful sets of interchangeable needles from Lykke -- sets with 3.5" tips and sets with 5" tips.
To quote the Lykke Needle website:
Named after the Norwegian word for happiness, LYKKE Crafts combine high quality materials and thoughtful design to produce beautiful, durable, happy-making knitting .
These Grove Needles are brand-new for 2020 and are crafted of bamboo. I quote again:
Grove needles are bamboo knitting needles reimagined. The raw bamboo is treated with LYKKE's proprietary process which enriches the bamboo to strengthen and smooth it, as well as add a touch of green that evokes the feeling of bamboo just cut from a grove.
This is accentuated with tasteful green caps with laser engraved needle sizes. Knitting with LYKKE's Grove needles will surely help you make happy!
They are available in two gift sets - a natural beige jute canvas that has a very subtle and tasteful tweed effect, and a chartreuse green textured basketweave effect that is eye catching & fun.
Our beautiful needles and hooks are handcrafted and assembled in a scenic region of Kathmandu, Nepal. Our production routines do not rely on mechanized automation. Instead, our products benefit from the skilled and graceful human touch of our skilled Nepalese craftspeople. As global demand is increasing for our products, this community of skilled workers is growing too, expanding our output capacity.
We are happy and proud to support the growth and development of the local economy in Nepal. Revenue from the sale of LYKKE Crafts products also serves to Make Happy in that community through varied benefit programs for the workers, their children, and the community.
We appreciate and value the opportunity to employ this growing community of skilled craftspeople in Nepal and happily embrace the natural, human pace of production. We thank LYKKE Crafts' customers for their patience, consideration and support.
