Product Description

Extreme Knitting Needles - what to choose and why ...... WAXED or UNWAXED - the BEST are WAXED. Our wax is exceptionally high grade, eco-friendly, quality, wood solidifying wax which is proving to remain good for many years if not for the life of the tools - no need to rewax these. We offer the unwaxed as a cheaper tool for those on a budget - we strongly recommend that you coat unwaxed wood with a wood wax before use. Any diameter x 500mm length - SINGLE BED THROW or small rugs tools. Make up to a single bed throw in 10-14 hours or smaller floor rug in 2-4 hours - eg bath mat, bedside rug or small fireside rug. Any diameter x 600mm length - DOUBLE BED THROW or medium rugs tools. Make up to a double bed throw in 12-16 hours / medium size floor rug in 5-8 hours - eg for living room/large bedside/fireside rug. Any diameter x 700mm length - KING SIZE BED THROW or larger rugs tools. Make up to a king size bed throw in 16-22 hours / large floor rug in 9-12 hours - eg for living room/conservatory rugs. We find the 600 or 700 mm length tools are the MOST COMFORTABLE. When Extreme Knitting you sit on a wide seat - such as a sofa - with the tools across your lap, your shoulders and neck relaxed. You work slowly and the cloth you are making grows fast. All our tools are also excellent for making HAMMOCKS and FENCE panel pieces in strings and ropes. Depending on the multiples of strands you use you get approx the following STITCH SIZES: 15mm tools - 1.2mm-1.7mm (1/2" to 3/4") 19mm tools - 1.7mm-2.5mm (3/4"to 1") 24mm tools - 2.5 mm-3.5mm (1" to 1 1/2") 27mm tools - 3.5 mm-4.5mm (1 1/2"- 2") DON'T FORGET to check out our other listings - we will be introducing new patterns and pattern booklets for using our Extreme Textiles Tools.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good 4 Mar 2014
Size Name:24mm x 600mm|Verified Purchase
The needles were good and suited my project. The only problem was that the points were too severely tapered and the wool caught on the lip. I had them graduated and they were much better with an extra layer of wax.
