Our Dreamz knitting needles hardly need an introduction they’ve been so popular. But in case you hadn’t heard we wanted to make sure you didn’t get left out. The staff (and customers) have been particularly excited by the new line of Dreamz needles. And for good reason, the Dreamz are a unique color tinted set of needles with a smooth hand at a reasonable price. The Dreamz line is so extensive I wanted to take a moment to walk you through it and familiarize you with this great and affordable needle line.

The Dreamz are constructed of laminated birch, an affordable needle to make and a durable needle to invest in. Not only is it considered a dense, smooth wood allowing for sharp points and smooth finish; it is considered stronger than ebony and rosewood at a much less expensive price point. Additionally, its construction is resistant to water absorption, making it particularly suited against warping.

A favorite aspect of this line is its color coded system. Each size is assigned a different lovely wood stain, and the colors are consistently matched to sizes across the Dreamz line. Sizes are marked clearly on the needles as well.

We offer 10” Single Pointed Needles in US sizes 2.5–17 (3-12mm). These lightweight needles share the graduated and ample tip of the other Dreamz needles. All sizes are available separately as well as together in the Dreamz Single Points Needle Set. The set includes sizes US 2.5–11 in a stylish black jacquard zippered case.

Our Dreamz Double Pointed Needles are sold in packs of 5 with a length option of 5”, 6” or 8”. The 5 and 6” lengths are available in sizes US 0–6, and the 8” spans the US 2.5–11. Additionally, there are Double Pointed Needle Sets available in 5” or 6” which include US sizes 0–3, each set is organized in its own vinyl carrying case. Although warping is of less concern for this style of needle the thinner needles will still need to be treated with care.

Dreamz Fixed Circular Knitting Needless have a smooth nickel plated join and supple cord particularly suited for magic loop. The wide range of cord lengths include 16” in US sizes 0-11 and 24”, 32”, 40” and 47” in US sizes 0–19. To aid in size differentiation MM and US sizes are etched into the join as well as the wooden tip.

The Dreamz Interchangeable Circular Deluxe Set is a great way to economically collect all sizes and lengths of needles in one compact vinyl case. The set comes with a set of 9 tips, US sizes 4–11. Shorter tips are available separately for creating a 16” needle to supplement the interchangeable set.

Deluxe sets can be expanded with additional tips and cables including the Chunky Set, which includes US sizes 13, 15 and 17. If you aren’t ready for the investment of the Deluxe set the Starter Set provides a great low-commitment way to try them out. The Dreamz Starter Set includes US sizes 6, 9 and 10. If you haven’t set your heart on a needle material yet there’s also a Comby Set with samples of Dreamz, Nova and Trendz acrylic needles, to help you decide which needle you like working with best.

Although we’ve covered the crochet line before, the Dreamz lineup would not be complete without its mention. Our Dreamz Crochet Hooks and Dreamz Interchangeable Tunisian Crochet Hooks are available singly in US sizes E–12mm as a perfect supplement for any collection. The Dreamz Crochet Hook Set and Interchangeable Tunisian Crochet Hook Set sets feature sizes US E–L and come in a handy vinyl carrying case.

Our trio set of Dreamz Cable Needles is a really clever set. Not only are the cable needles various lengths, they are marked with US sizes and correspond with the color coded needles. How fantastic!

It’s clear that this has been a customer favorite. I must admit that we are smitten with this needle line as well. But don’t just take our word for it, make sure to sample these needles yourself, and see what all the fuss is about.
