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.
