Susanne's Ebony 24" Circular Needles

Crafted in Germany from scrap wood salvaged from a piano manufacturer, these needles are just gorgeous. They are wonderful to knit with. The wood is smooth and the yarn moves effortlessly over the needles. These needles are a perfect treat for yourself or the knitter in your life. Sizes listed are United States size, however, they are only approximations of the original European millimeter size.

Available online only.

    I keep returning to these, nothing beats them. You can get beautifully precise lace tips by shaping with a little scrap of sandpaper, and rubbing in a little oil (of ANY kind) brings the finish back to original. I love that they are not lacquered or coated with any chemical finish or whatever, because they acquire a marble-smooth finish with use as oils from skin and wool get rubbed in over time. And no matter how fine a yarn you knit with these, nothing ever gets slowed down by stitches needing to be "helped" over the join. Also, after a number of years in the desert, where wood shrinks and glues disintegrate, these are the only brand that have never once fallen apart. I only wish they also came in 16" length. These are the best ebony needles I have ever used, bar none

        I love these ebony knitting needles. I have bought them in a variety of sizes and lengths because they make knitting so much more enjoyable. The more I use them the smoother they feel and the join is not even noticeable. A real pleasure to knit with and I will continue to add to my collection.

              Comments about Susanne's Ebony 24" Circular Needles:

              I find these wood knitting needles to be the best I have ever used. They withstand use, sometimes abuse, as I have a very tight grip when I knit--depending on the yarn--and they never have splintered like other woods or bamboo needles.
              My only complaint is the size variety is very limited to the smaller needles. Some of the middle range or larger--for bulky yarns--are not available.
              I think they would support heavier yarns, if they were offered.
              They are my favorite needle to use, though they limit me to lighter weight yarns and more delicate projects.

                Susanne's Ebony Needles cannot be imitated. The join on the circular needles does not catch the yarn like other brands. The needles are constructed out of old pianos found in Europe and the legacy of the product I find fascinating.

                Comments about Susanne's Ebony 24" Circular Needles:

                I bought these needles because I love to use wood over any other material. Not only were these needles easy to work with but they do not catch the yarn, tug or snag any type of natural materials used. Truly a plus because I find metal drags and gets very scratched eventually making knitting very slow.
                Plastic or acrylic needles and I just do not get along, they just do not feel good in my fingers and drag on the silk wool blends I like to use a lot.
                Bamboo is my least favorite knitting needle because it splinters and does not age well, especially the way I knit.
                Love these specialty wood needles both straights and circular are my favorite.

                Love dpns in rosewood for socks, circs for sweaters, straights for lacework. Tips are not too blunt to pick up small stitches or frog small stuff where dropping a stitch would not be fun. Joins are so smooth you hardly know they're there. Luxury is the name of the game.

                    I can only use wooden needles, and these are the best I've found. Durable, smooth, and great at holding a sharp point even with a lot of use. I only wish I could get every size and circular length in these needles!
