New! Knitter’s Pride Karbonz Needles

Share Button

We recently received the newest needles from Knitter’s Pride and we’re excited to share them with you. Check out the Knitter’s Pride Karbonz in our video.

The needles feature a carbon fiber body and nickel-plated brass tips. Since they are made of carbon fiber, the needles have a high tensile strength, warm feel, and a surface that helps your stitches move smoothly. They are also extremely lightweight.

Because the carbon fiber is so sturdy, Knitter’s Pride offers these needles in the smallest of sizes. We have cricular needles in 16″-40″ n US0-US4, 10″ single point needles in US0-US4, and 6″ and 8″ double point needles. The 6″ are available in US000-US4 and 8″ in US00-US2.5.

    Got a set of dpns at Stitches East and I love them.

    Have all the fixed 24″ and cannot wait for more sizes! These really are the best of both worlds – sharp points and soft barrel.

    I love these needles. I finally got a circular in size one and 40″. I magic loop and these are fantastic.The cable is flexible and the points are so slick and pointy. I cant wait for the larger sizes!

    Why don’t they come in larger sizes? I see it says “Because the carbon fiber is so sturdy, Knitterā€™s Pride offers these needles in the smallest of sizes” but that doesn’t really make sense. Also, there is a typo up there, “cricular” is not a word.

    love these needles. Any plans to offer larger sizes?

    I bought these in size 0 and 00 double-points, for sock knitting. The reason it’s great that they are offered in such small sizes is that such thin needles are relatively fragile, even in bamboo, and tend to warp after time, even if they don’t break. I haven’t used these carbon fiber needles for very long but I expect that they will not warp the way my (otherwise beloved) Crystal Palace size 0 dp bamboo needles have. I’m sure they would also be nice in larger sizes because they are slick, smooth and light, but it’s their strength which I found most intriguing.

    Does Karbonz straight needles comes in set? I would like to buy them in a set rather than individually.

    Would be great to have them available in bigger sizes
