This is an actual section of Moso bamboo with a beautiful, laser engraved ChiaoGoo on it. It is 6" (15 cm) tall and can easily hold up to 20 pairs of needles. Great for your collection of single points, double points, or whatever else you want to hold in it. Each one is slightly different since they are made in nature. A great bargain for a great product. A must have to go with your ChiaoGoo Yarn Butler!
