Crafted from smooth Chinese Moso Bamboo, known for its strength & durability, these needles are warm in the hands and will provide hours of knitting pleasure.
ChiaoGoo's 16″ (40 cm) patina, bamboo circulars have fantastic joins and pliable, clear, nylon cables. They have a nickel-plated, copper join. Sizes 3 (3.25 mm) and larger are crimped to guarantee no separation AND they swivel! Sizes 0 (2 mm) through 2.5 (3 mm) have the same memory-free cable as our RED circulars and TWIST cables! Needle size is permanently laser imprinted on each circular.
ChiaoGoo was born in China where manufacturing began in the 1980's using bamboo knitting needles as the main source of income for the Zheng family. The maternal figure was in constant need of better needles and is the driving force behind ChiaoGoo, which means "highly Skillful and crafty lady". Leon Zheng, one of four brothers, started the distribution center in Troy, MI so that these wonderful goods could also be designed and marketed in America. His distribution center is responsible for all needle designs since 2005 as well as equipment and manufacturing upgrades. While the needles are still made in China, this company is of both China and the United States.
Every ChiaoGoo product purchased through an authorized ChiaoGoo dealer carries a product lifetime guarantee from manufacturing defect.
