    Blackthorn Double Points

    Blackthorn Double Pointed Needles have the feel of wood and the strength of steel. The pointed tips make fine work easier, and Blackthorns have enough grab to keep yarn on the needle but are slick enough to work fast. Virtually indestructible! Set of 5 needles included, each 6" long. Available in sizes US 0000 - US 4. Crafted in the USA.

    Note: These needles may have a slight residue that could mar white or light-colored yarns. The manufacturer suggests thoroughly wiping down each needle before initial use.

      Comments about Blackthorn Double Points:

      I was looking for fine needles to make light weight mitts for use in an office environment. The first #1 broke, the next #0 bent. I purchased these with the hope that they would be resilient and strong. They were. I purchased #000 and #0000. They are expensive, but strong and resilient. However they have a slightly roughened testure to mimic wood and are unpleasant to work with because they feel dry, scratchy and tend to snag very fine fibers like silk.

        Comments about Blackthorn Double Points:

        Just like they say: feels like wood; nice sharp tips...and indestructible. Enough grab to hold slippery yarns; enough ease to slide the novelties. I love to hold them, look at them, and of course use them. One caution: don't sit or step on them!

        Comments about Blackthorn Double Points:

        These no-slide sock needles are magnificent. They grab the wool and hold it in place; their points make it easy to do even tricky twists and cables. They look and act like ebony, only better..since they are virtually unbreakable. Easily worth the price since unless you lose them, they will never need replacng.
