Research and years of experience has helped us determine that our handmade knitting needles will be 18cm long and 6mm thick.
This is a great length for children to hold, and also for adults who are doing small projects!
The beauty of these handmade wooden knitting needles is that they get smoother and more comfortable in your hands the more they are used.
6mm needles are suitable for 8 ply (double knitting), but for really fantastic results use 12 ply yarn. 12 ply will give faster more satisfying results for the beginner knitter.
