BRITTANY knitting needles are made in the USA from sustainably harvested Birch. These finely crafted wooden tools are hand finished and exactly sized. They are not only beautiful to look at but feel warm and smooth in your hands and are a pleasure to work with. Katherine's notes: I love working with these needles - the yarn slides over the smooth finish and they are comfortable in my hands. The ends are so nicely turned that I store them on my shelf in a vase to enjoy even when not in use!
