Brittany Needles sustainably produces birch wood knitting needles and crochet hooks. The birch wood is harvested from conciously managed forests in the USA.
Wood is warm, smooth and soft. It won’t drain heat from sensitive fingers the way aluminum and plastic needles do.
Birch is a superior wood for this purpose, its tensile strength and stability maintains size, resists warping and allows for an extremely smooth surface. It is lightweight so the needles won’t fall out of your knitting. The proprietary finish provides for one of the slickest needles on the market.
Wood is our greatest renewable natural resource. It is environmentally friendly; it’s recyclable, biodegradable and durable; when it is no longer needed it can be returned to the earth.
