High-quality wooden needles will naturally become slicker with use (from the lanolin in wool and oil from knitters’ hands). If needed, it is a good idea to clean with muslin or shammy. I do not recommend using beeswax since I have not personally tested this theory on these products; therefore, I cannot say with certainty that it works or that it will not damage the needles. Besides, I do not recommend using anything on your needles as it may void the warranty.
I do suggest using stoppers when not knitting, so that they may be stored safely while not in use and their tips remain intact. Please keep them out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight - too much heat will make the smooth finish dull.
Lastly, I also do not recommend using any lotions on your hands while knitting - certain chemicals react with the wood, causing the finish to become dull very quickly.
