Lykke Driftwood Fixed Circular Knitting Needle (60")01-03KF-LFCNDriftwood-60"8mm
Made of strong birch wood, the LYKKE knitting needles are simply gorgeous and a pleasure to work with. The warmth and smoothness of hardwood nurtures sensitive fingers and provides natural strength and consistency for a lasting product. This means these needles are insanely sleek and lightweight, but amazingly durable at the same time!
It’s a fine choice for knitting needles because it allows for tip integrity (no fraying or splintering) while also still yielding ever so slightly in your hands. With a varying greyish, driftwood-like finish, they are careful on the eyes too, making every yarn clearly visible, no matter what color you choose.
With a 60" cord, these needles are very versatile and will let you approach an unimaginable variety of projects. Whether you want to jump into a big knitting adventure (think comfy blankets and precious rugs), or smaller designs (using the magic loop method), these high-quality needles won't let you down.
All LYKKE needles and hooks have both US and metric sizes etched into the shiny black metal endcaps to ensure long-term readability (sizing won't wear off)

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.
The needles and hooks are handcrafted and assembled in Nepal, using production routines that do not rely on mechanized automation. Instead, their products benefit from the skilled and graceful human touch of their skilled Nepalese craftspeople. Revenue from the sale of LYKKE Crafts products also serves to Make Happy in that community through varied benefit programs for the workers, their children, and the community. We are so happy and proud to support the growth and development of the local economies.
