Clover Takumi bamboo knitting needles has a tapered, round point that never splits the yarn. They are smooth to the touch and become even smoother to the touch the more you knit with them. Clover bamboo knitting needles are 60% lighter than aluminum knitting needles of the same size, so your hand doesn't tire even after long hours of knitting. Needle thickness is important because it determines stitch size. You can be sure that every "Takumi" bamboo knitting needle with the same size will be of the exact same thickness and shape. Single - pointed, double - pointed, and circular needles with the same number and size can be used interchangeably - the result will always be beautiful, uniform stitches. Available in two lengths below and double points. Sizes 0 thru 10 are 13" in length, sizes 11 thru 15 are 14" in length.
Clover Takumi double point knitting needles offer the same smooth tips and benefits as the Clover Single Point knitting needles above. Set of 5 per size, 7 inch length. Sizes 0 thru 15.
Why circular knitting needles? Even if you are not knitting in the round circular needles have many advantages. They are much easier to knit with, especially when you are sitting in a chair with arms, no long needles to catch on anything since your knitting is resting in your lap. Once you are done knitting you can just slide your work into the center of the flexible cord and your stitches will not slide off unintentional. Clover Bamboo circular knitting needles combine smooth joints and strong nylon cording for a quality knitting needle. Bamboo knitting needles never feel cold to the touch! Available in four lengths and a variety of sizes. Enjoy!

The building of a Takumi knitting needle begins with selecting only the choicest natural bamboo from Japan. Not all bamboo is the same. Clover uses bamboo from cold climates. These bamboo trees are hard and highly resistant to bending, making them most suitable for Takumi Bamboo Knitting Needles. Additionally, the bamboo comes from regions with the least amount of snowfall to avoid those stems that have been bent or damaged by weight of the snow.
Young bamboos have woody fibers that are too soft, and the older ones are too brittle. Clover selects fully matured trees and properly aged bamboo stock with uniform density and length. The trees are harvested in the winter season because it is at this time that they contain less water so as to avoid staining and molding. During the winter, the woody fibers are tighter and produce a needle with a strong density.
These high quality Takumi bamboo knitting needles, available in all the popular sizes and lengths will provide you countless hours of relaxing knitting. The more you knit with them, the more you’ll love knitting.
