Made of high quality stainless steel or bamboo impregnated with resin, HiyaHiya Bamboo, Steel, and Sharp Steel Interchangeable Needle Sets feature keyless screw-on connections with flexible cables with lifeline holes, good joins, and a smooth finish. They are lightweight to handle and will warm quickly to the hand.
Sets are available in Small or Large sizes, with 4" or 5" tips, and with Bamboo, Steel, or Sharp Steel point tips. (Bamboo is not available in Large 4")
Case fabrics are always changing... We seem to never get the same one twice from the supplier. Photos shown are general examples only. The fabric pattern and color of the case you receive will be different. If you have a color preference please enter it in the notes field at checkout and we'll do our best!
HiyaHiya also makes a Sock Set, which uses an even smaller screw base and 5" tips to assemble US 0-2.5 needles.
Additional tips, cables, and other accessories are sold separately so you can customize your set to suit your exact preferences.

HiyaHiya Steel and Bamboo needles have a standard, slightly rounded tip, while Sharp Steel needles have a pointier tip ideal for lace. Neither is right or wrong - it's a personal preference!
HiyaHiya interchangeable sets come in two tip lengths - 4" and 5". When paired with cords, the 5" tips will create a total needle length that is 2" longer than the 4" tips. Choose your tip length based on which is more comfortable for you personally to hold.
Sets with 4" tips include a cord to make a 16" needle. Sets with 5" tips do not include this length cord because they don't combine to make a functional needle. So, sets with 5" tips instead include two 26" cables.
HiyaHiya interchangeable needles are split between two screw base sizes. US 2-8 needle tips have a smaller base; US 9-15 needle tips have a larger base. Because the small and large needle tips have different screw bases the tips and cords are not by default interchangeable between the two. Optional adapters are available separately to use large tips on small cords. The assembled needle lengths listed for these sets are measured from tip to tip with tips attached to cables.
The length listed for these cables is the assembled length from tip to tip with needle tips attached. Because HiyaHiya needle tips come in two lengths, that means two assembled lengths are listed for each cord - one with two 4" tips and one with two 5" tips. The total assembled needle length is the combination of the lengths of both tips and the cord. For approximate cord length to make your desired assembled needle length, please see the chart below:
