Knitter's Pride Ginger Knitting Needles are made birch wood offering a beautifully smooth, warm feel for comfortable knitting. Water absorption is negligible with Ginger needles leaving little chance of warping and enables the points to be sharp. Please remember all wooden needles in the lower ranges (2–3.5mm) should be treated with appropriate care.
