Blue Sky Alpacas Five Inch Double Points

Blue Sky Five Inch Double Points are back, and they're more exquisite than ever! Made from reclaimed wood, these needles are hand-lathed from Dalbergia Rosewood (also known as dark rosewood). They're polished up to a brilliant luster that shows off the gorgeous grain patterns without the use of harsh chemicals.

Not only are these needles gorgeous, but you can also feel good about buying them! They're handcrafted by highly trained and skilled artisans in Vietnam who work in family-owned and managed businesses that offer training and opportunity to their workers. Your purchase helps the workers earn a livable wage and contributes to an educational trust fund for their children. Available in sizes 0-6, these petite needles come in one of our award-winning tins, with a different color and design for each size. You can collect them all and feel good doing it! Set of 5 needles.

      I knit two pairs of socks and was very pleased with the outcome. The needles are very easy to use and the knitting is consistently even.

          Bought a set of these to knit socks. One snapped before I finished the cuff in the first sock. Returned them to the store for a replacement. The second one snapped after another two inches of knitting. I have knit dozens of pairs of socks on other needles and never had a needle break. I can only assume the might be constructed of laminated wood and they are snapping at the joins.

            I really like these. I have had them for three years and have made at least 30 pairs of socks and 20 pairs of mittens. I use a size 2 needle. They are very durable.

                Good sizes; beautiful wood which "grabs" the sock yarns without any pulling.

                Too flexible for my taste

                Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Five Inch Double Points:

                Like Diogenes searching for the proverbial honest man, I am searching for double points that have a smooth, non -snagging finish and sharp points for lacework. Nickel and aluminum dpns are too slick - the yarn tends to slither quickly out of the two or three needles (of the 4 or 5 needle set) that are not being held while knitting - alarming! All bamboo dpns I've found to have tips that are too blunt. Those multicolored wood dpns have rough spots. I hoped these would do the trick. While they might fulfil my dreams in a larger diameter needle, the US1 size is so flexible it is difficult to cable with. I guess I'll try carbon composite next.

                  Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Five Inch Double Points:

                  I've made 14 pairs of socks with my size 1 and size 0 dpns. I use the toe-up, short-row heel method, and even knitting through the wrapped stitches of the short-row heels, none of my needles have broken. I've feared it, and been careful, but they've been little troopers and stayed in one piece. They're nicely slick, but if I am interrupted with only one stitch on a needle, the needle doesn't slide out. And, unlike bamboo needles, these don't split and have to be discarded, and there are no small splits that snag the yarn. I love these dpns. Love, love, love. The only negative is that two sizes have similar shades on the tins (mustard & yellow) that could be a little more distinctive, but the tins have the size marked.

                    Loved the needles and the storage box. However, these won't hold up to use. Mine snapped on the second pair of socks - heartbreaking given the price of these needles!
