5 x 2.25mm 40cm/17inch long steel double pointed needles
manufactured especially for Guernsey Sweaters
The Cornish Gansey Company prides itself in keeping a small eco footprint. Our 5ply Guernsey Wool is sourced from a local company based here in Cornwall and so too are our gorgeous long 2.25mm double pointed knitting needles.
This length and size are tricky to find these days, so our supplier has gone to great lengths to have them manufactured especially for Guernsey Sweater knitting. Each stainless steel needle has been designed to hold the weight of an adult sweater without breakage. Mine have been used to create many designs and are superb. They develop gentle dips in the centre over time due to weight of the sweater but this almost wears them in to fit the knitter so they become a much loved and well used part of your yarn tool box.
