This product is currently unavailable for purchase.

Add to Wishlist

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.

This item is available online only. Local customers can choose the In-Store Pickup option when placing their order online.

My new favorite needle brand. I have two pairs of circulars (6 and 10) and I could knit for hours with these. Easy on my hand, yarn does not snag - an absolute pleasure to use. I do not not want to be constantly fiddling with my needles - I want to knit! And with these, it is a wonderful rythmn of yarn, fingers and needles. I use bright colors as a rule, but I can see where the black of the needles might make it harder for someone knitting with dark colors.

These arrived with both needles came off the metal connectors.(They were off when I opened the package; they were still in the cardboard packaging) I used my pointe shoe glue (=pretty strong stuff) to glue them back and didn't come back off.

However, the cable part is extremely stiff, almost as stiff as the Clover needles from the chain hobby stores and the join at the metal connectors and the needles aren't designed smoothly (the angle seemed much steeper than other needles I've used).. I bought these for my husband who just started knitting and I thought these would make a great gift item..

At this price (the sz 8 needles we got were around $15), I'd rather get him something nicer to work with.

Nice needles that a smooth to work with. I was not sure they were the correct size at first. Still think they maybe on the small side.

Comments about SUSANNE'S 32 inch Ebony Circular Needles:

The ebony wood is beautiful, and lovely to work with. It helped me to salvage a project made with less-than-stellar yarn. I especially liked the fact that the wood was rescued from a piano factory. My only complaint is that the cord is unwieldy, but that may be partially my fault. Before using them again, I'll dip only the cord in boiling water briefly to relax it.

Comments about SUSANNE'S 32 inch Ebony Circular Needles:

These circular needles are poorly made. The metal ends all came off when I was knitting making it impossible to move the wool back and forth. I glued the metal ends so that they would not detach but still the yarn would not slide. I am so very disappointed.

      Comments about SUSANNE'S 32 inch Ebony Circular Needles:

      I read the reviews and bought them anyway so it serves me right. Sliding the stitches for the second row of knitting, the needle separated from the cable and the lace alpaca yarn I was using bunched and got caught on the rough end of the needle. Horrible horrible needles.

          Comments about SUSANNE'S 32 inch Ebony Circular Needles:

          These ebony needles are so luxurious. I have been working on a dress with a cotton/rayon yarn and using the size 6 circular needles. They are so smooth and soft to the touch but sturdy and durable at the same time. I have just bought more in various sizes and wish they were available in a greater size range.

          I like the handles of these circulars, but find the cord too thin and not flexible enough for me.

            I knit back and forth, but only use circulars. I have liked Susanne's in the past, and really like ebony.
