If you're after an introduction to interchangeable needles, then this is the perfect set for you! The Comby Interchangeable Sampler Set (I) contains a pair each of Nova Metal, Symfonie Wood and Trendz Acrylic needle tips along with 2 cables in useful lengths.
Nova Metal needles are made from hollow brass pipes which have been electroplated. This provides a smooth surface that allows stitches to move freely and quickly. These needles are lightweight, durable and comfortable to knit with.
Symfonie Wood needles ares made from colourful densified laminated birch wood. They are lightweight yet exceptionally strong and and durable. Water absorption in Symfonie wood needles is negligible and, as a result, there is no chance of warping. The polished wood surface works effortlessly with every type of yarn without slowing down knitting rhythm. Warm to the touch, these needles are a pleasure to knit with.
Trendz Acrylic needles are made from superior quality acrylic material. Lightweight, smooth and with just the right amount of flexibility, these needles are also exceptionally strong and durable. Ideal for new knitters as well as the more experienced.
The Comby Interchangeable Sampler Set (I) contains 3 pairs of needle tips and 2 cables, packaged in a handy vinyl case.
Interchangeable needles work by screwing the end of the flexible cable into the needle tips, tightening with the cable key to ensure the cables don't come undone during knitting. Smooth joins enable stitches to slide easily from tip to cable.
These tips are standard length - approximately 12cm (4.75") long, a popular length for day-to-day use and medium / large projects.
Please Note: circular lengths are achieved when needle tips and cables are joined together. The length does not refer to the actual length of the cable on its own.
