These 6-inch needles are made from a high-tech carbon fiber with tips in nickel-plated brass. The combination of light-weight flexible carbon fiber and sharp brass tips makes these needles very different from other knitting needles. The brass tips are perfectly tapered to provide perfect stitch pick-up. These needles are warm to the touch and gentle in the hand.
These lovely needles have a nice stainless steel tip but a shaft of poly carbon. Because of this they are both warm and gentle on your hand but sharp.
