Crystal Palace Bamboo Knitting Needles and Crochet Hooks are made with the savvy needle artist in mind.  There are many features that make Crystal Palace Classic Bamboo a choice above the rest. First, the bamboo takes approximately 10 years to mature, whereas most bamboo products use bamboo that takes 3-5 years to mature. This makes for a much stronger finished product. The needles are put through a steam autoclave process that prevents the needles from warping. Then they are fnished with a natural resin that penetrates the needle, rather than with a lacquered top coat that could chip. The needles are hand-inspected before packaging for final quality control.   Watch the slide show for more information on the manufacturing process.

 

Crystal Palace Bamboo come in 9" and 12" SP's, 6" and 8" DP's, 16", 26" and 35" circulars and 6" crochet hooks.
