That’s right everyone! We FINALLY have Bamboo Interchangeable Needles again!
Steve & I have been working on this project for what seems like forever! Many of you may remember that at one time we did carry a bamboo interchangeable set but had to discontinue it for a variety of reasons. We’ve searched long and hard to find a partner to produce the set for us at the level of quality we expected. Needless to say, we saw a lot of crappy needles along the way, but we couldn’t be more thrilled with our new set. Let me give you tour:
Included in our set is the following:
Nine sets of tips in sizes #4 to #11. We will also have size #3 available seperately. The tips are made from high-quality, hard bamboo and won’t split or splinter. Sizes #4-#6 have a gold-tone base while sizes #7-#11 have a black base, which indicates which diameter of cable should be used.
Four sets of cables in three different lengths (16″, 24″, 32″) – that’s two cables in two diameters in each of the three lengths are included. The cables themselves are soft and flexible. Our joins are smooth and secure and do not require a tool of any sort. Just simply screw on your tips and start knitting!
The set also includes two adaptors (one in each diameter) that allow you to combine cables up to 64″. There are also two pairs of knobs so you can remove your tips from any active project and use them on a different project.
We’ve also included a Knitter’s Gauge made from durable plastic that will assist you with tracking your gauge and determining needle sizes. It also has a handy cutting edge!
The set is presented in a gorgeous silk case that folds up for easy storage or travel. It’s light weight and the construction ensures that everything has a place and stays in their place securely.
Our Bamboo Interchangeable Set, with everything I’ve listed here retails for $109.99. We think this is a dynamite price considering all of the parts and pieces included. Additional tips ($6.99) , cables ($3.99 for a pkg of 2), adaptors ($1.00 each) and knobs ($2.00/pair) will also be available separately, along with the #3 tip.
We’re taking preorders now for the sets. We’ll have some advance sets shortly and will have significant stock within 2-3 weeks. Open stock will follow later this fall.
I hope you are all as excited as we are. I know there are many of you who lamented over the demise of our previous set. We think this one is even better and well worth the wait.
I’d love to hear what you think or answer any questions in the comments!
P.S. It appears that the software I use for comments and WordPress are having an issue. I was wondering why nobody was commenting! I was feeling very sad. I’ll be looking into this and will post back as soon as the glitch is fixed!
