Probably the best reason has to do with the benefits of wood. Wood is warm, smooth and soft. It won’t drain heat from sensitive fingers the way aluminum and plastic needles do. We have many comments from arthritis patients and their doctors that they wouldn’t be knitting if it weren’t for wooden needles. The warmth and smoothness of hardwood nurtures sensitive fingers and provides natural strength and consistency for a lasting product.
Birch is a superior wood for this purpose, its tensile strength and stability maintains size, resists warping and allows for an extremely smooth surface. It is lightweight so the needles won’t fall out of your knitting yet our proprietary finish provides for one of the slickest needles on the market.
Wood is our greatest renewable natural resource. It is environmentally friendly; it’s recyclable, biodegradable and durable; when it is no longer needed it can be returned to the earth.
BRITTANY knitting needles and crochet hooks are made in the USA from sustainably harvested birch. These finely crafted wooden tools are hand finished and exactly sized. Gene and Galer Barnes started BRITTANY in their garage in Northern California 41 years ago. Chris and Michri worked with his parents for 15 years and officially took over the business in 2013. They do all the manufacturing which ensures consistent quality and individual care.
