Symfonie Needles
These needles include the Symfonie Wood, Dreamz, Cubics (cuboid-shaped) and Rose lines: All of these are made from densified laminated birch wood. This material is more costly and much harder than either ebony or rosewood. Unlike in other wooden needles, water absorption in Symfonie wood needles is negligible and, as a result, there is no chance of warping. The same property makes our needles very strong, enables the points to be sharp and provides a lifetime of pleasurable use, if handled correctly. Please remember that all wooden needles in the lower ranges (2.00mm-3.5mm) should be treated with appropriate care.
 
The Symfonie Wood needles are offered in a very attractive color combination / pattern in all the needle styles: straight, circular (fixed and interchangeable), double points and crochet hooks. Needles in the Symfonie Wood line are available from 2.00mm (US 0) to l5.00mm (US 19).

In the UK, knitting needle 'numbers' are the Standard Wire Gauge designation of the wire from which metal needles are made. The origin of the numbering system is uncertain but it is thought that needle numbers are based on the number of increasingly fine dies that the wire has to be drawn through. In the UK, then, thinner needles thus have a larger number, whereas in the US the opposite applies.
