Blackthorn Double Points

$15.99 Each
$35.00

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.

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.

From the description, I was expecting something quite different from what I received. These are the grippiest needles I've ever worked with, to the point that it was uncomfortably difficult to slide my stitches along them. I expected them to have nice sharp points because they're described as pointy, but I actually found them rather dull. When they rub against each other, they make an awful sound that's reminiscent of fingernails on a chalkboard mixed with a metal fork scraping against a plate, which makes me cringe every time I hear it. I wish I hadn't bought three pairs of these, because I won't be using them.

With some sanding, polishing, and sharpening, they might become usable, but it really shouldn't be necessary.

On the plus side, they have a pleasant sheen...

    I like them. Good grip with the 000. It does have an odd sound, a combination of squeak and grind. I'm ok with it. I plan to buy other sizes.

      These needles allow for control over small stitches as the needles are smooth without being slick. The length insures that the stitches are secure.

        Take getting used to. Yarn does not slip. Creates very even tension once you get used to them and you can knit very quickly with them. Yes they can make a scratchy noise but I didn't mind it.

                Comments about Blackthorn Double Points:

                I wanted small size needles that wouldn't break in use, so the 00 is my experiment. These take some getting used to, strange surface texture and feel, and very grippy. They are growing on me, and I say give them a good long trial. Pretty sharp points.

                Tough yet flexible, these carbon DPNs are quite pointy and easy to use, yet stand up to very tight knitting, even in a size 00.

                Service and delivery comments:

                After an initially incomplete order, the missing item was sent to me very quickly.

                  No matter what type of knitting material, wool, silk, cotton, etc, the stitches do not slide off the needle but do come off smoothly while knitting. Absolutely love the feel, the warmth, the soft touch, the strength.
