Exotic Wood Knitting Needle Sampler Set

Exotic Wood Knitting Needle Sampler Set

The Exotic Wood Knitting Needle Sampler Set features four beautiful exotic woods, in 10 inch length sizes 7, 8, 9 and 10.  The set comes wrapped in a suede leather case.  This would make a wonderful gift for that ‘nutty’ knitter on your list or for yourself - you’re
probably an avid knitter or you wouldn’t be looking at this. 

I’m so pleased with these knitting needles that I’ll refund the price (when you return the knitting needles) if you are not pleased with your purchase.

These needles are made by a ‘medium’ sized old guy in Seeley Lake, Montana on a lathe that’s probably 50 years old (can’t afford a new one) in a shop with a leaky roof.  All this said, it’s the largest and best knitting needle ‘factory’ in Montana.  Each knitting needle being made individually by hand guarantees that no two will be exactly alike, similar but not alike. 

This all started a couple of years ago when my wife finally convinced me I should try making wood knitting needles for her yarn shop (Books, Yarn & More) in Seeley Lake, Montana.  (It’s a nice place to visit if you’re in the ‘vicinity’ - that includes the western states or Canada). 

Did I mention that we have shipped knitting needles to discerning knitters in Japan, Australia and the UK as well as here in the states? 

In the past I limited my ‘production’ to Birch, Curly Maple & Bloodwood (Cardinal), but there are so many beautiful wood choices out there I wanted to introduce a few of the best (my opinion).  I will attempt to describe them as best I can.  Remember, photos are great but they don’t do them justice.

Cardinal / Blood Wood

Size #7 comes in the Bloodwood (Cardinal) - this is a very hard wood - almost as hard as Ebony.  How hard is Ebony you ask?  About as hard as wood gets.  Has a rich, deep red color with some subtle streaking.  Very consistent one piece to another.  This wood comes from Brazil and is fairly pricey. 


Cocobolo

Size #8 is made from ‘Cocobolo’ wood which comes from Nicaragua and Costa Rica.  The colors vary considerably from one piece to the next but is a beautiful mix of reds, browns and orange with some almost white mixed in - don’t expect a lot of this, though, it’s mostly darker colors.  This wood is also very hard and durable, also pricey.

Zebra Wood

The Size #9 is made from ‘Zebra’ wood which comes from South America and Africa.  The name is slightly misleading in that the colors are not black and white like a zebra but a very dark brown and tan striping.  Shows very nicely.  I took a survey in our store and this was the favorite of many.  It’s not quite as hard as the other woods in the set but still a very hard wood.  This wood is pricey, too.

Tulip Wood

The Size #10 is made from Tulip wood.  Tulip wood comes from Brazil and I suspect from all indications may be hard to obtain a good supply.  This is my favorite and sort of what started this project, when someone gave me a sample to try.  It’s very expensive (it’s hard to get) but worth the effort.  Dark pinkish or red striping on a cream colored base - again, photos won’t do them justice.  Tulip wood is very hard and durable - you’ll like them.

I think you will really be impressed with these beautiful needles.

This Knitting Needle Sampler Set comes in a dark brown, suede knitting needle holder case.

The knitting needles in this set comes in 10 inch length - other lengths available upon request.
