Lykke double-pointed needles 15 cm / 6"
15 cm/6" knitting needles are a perfect length for small garments such as socks, baby sleeves, the end of a hat etc. They are easier to handle than standard 20 cm needles, and work well until you can change to a short circular needle. The wooden needles are lighter in weight and hold on to the masks better than metal sticks, which tend to be a little heavy and slip out with a few stitches. Each sock pin set consists of 5 needles.
Lykke knitting needles are made of strong birch, and are wonderfully smooth and light. This means that the wrists do not get as much strain as they do with heavier needles. The smooth surface makes them easy and comfortable to knit with.
Both metric and American sizes are engraved into the needles so it does not wear off.
Lykke knitting needles and accessories are produced by a cooperative in Nepal which focuses on fair wages for the workers, and which contributes to e.g. schools and education for the local population. The manufacturer has a 5-year warranty on manufacturing defects.
