This is the most well thought out, perfect set of cable needles ever made! This set of five needles are made of bamboo so your stitches will stay put! The metal band around the center of the cable needles is not only slightly raised to help keep the needle from slipping out of your stitches while cabling or picking up stitches, it's also made of nickel plated steel so that it sticks to magnets! The points are purposely blunt so that you can use a fingernail file or pencil sharpener to customize your preferred sharpness on the tips. The 5 needles range from US 2 through US 10.75 to give you a full range of sizes. We hope you love them as much as we do!
