The warmth and smoothness of hardwood nurtures sensitive fingers and provides natural strength and consistency for a lasting product. Enjoy the patina of finish and elegance of design found only in Brittany's finely crafted hardwood knitting needles and crochet hooks.
Why buy Brittany needles and hooks? Probably the best reason has to do with the benefits of wood. Wood is warm, smooth and soft. It won't drain heat from sensitive fingers the way aluminum and plastic needles do. Many comments arthritis patients and their doctors that they wouldn't be knitting if it weren't for wooden needles.
Birch is a superior wood for this purpose, its tensile strength and stability maintains size, resists warping and allows for smoothness of finish no other needle can provide.
Wood is our greatest renewable natural resource. It is environmentally friendly; it's recyclable, biodegradable and durable; when it is no longer needed it can be returned to the earth. All wood used by Brittany comes from strictly regulated forests or small woodland owners in the United States ensuring proper environmental logging practices and selective cutting for maximum reforestation.
All Brittany products are guaranteed for five years against flaws and breakage from normal use.
