A revolutionary product! New-age needles made from high-tech carbon fiber with tips in electroplated brass give an unparalleled knitting experience. Carbon fiber is one of the most versatile materials used in the manufacture of aircraft, space ships, and automobiles. Why not bring this tech to your knitting! The needles have high tensile strength and are light weight all while retaining their flexibility. The carbon fiber surface helps the stitches move smoothly on the needle with just enough resistance to keep your projects from sliding off. They warm to your touch but are still gentle in the hand.
