Here's some truly space-age needles! They're Knitpro Karbonz, and they're made of carbon fibre, just like powerboats and space ships and racing cars. We've just got them in as interchangeable tips (sizes 3.00mm to 4.00mm), fixed circulars (from 2.00mm to 2.75mm) and individual sets of DPNs (from 2.25mm to 3.00mm). They're ever so fast to knit with, and the surface of the carbon fibre is just a smidge more grippy than the nickel-plated Knitpros. This, with those lovely pointy tips, makes them ideal kit for lace knitting. And if you're looking for a fantastic present for yourself or someone else, then the Sock Set would be just the thing - it's got five sizes (2.00mm, 2.50mm, 3.00mm, 3.5mm and 4.00mm) all in a very handy and attractive wallet. (If you're still looking for a Mother's Day gift for a knitter, then what could be better?) Using carbon fibre material means that these needles can go very small indeed - all the way down to 1.00mm! We won't be carrying the really teeny sizes routinely, but we'd be delighted to order them in for you specially, so get in touch if you want to try tiny knitting!
