Founded in 1916, Kinki Amibari is the manufacturer of Japan's finest bamboo knitting needles. Our needles are produced from specially selected Japanese bamboo of only the finest variety. They are superior in flexibility, durability, and lightness, and they are also warm to the touch. The perfectly formed tips are made by highly skilled craftsmen.
Kinki Amibari's Shirotake double pointed needles will elevate your knitting experience, making it more smooth and comfortable! Shirotake is a bamboo knitting needle that is soft and features the natural bounce of bamboo. The carefully polished surface and needle tips are smooth and provide for knitting comfort.
For knitting small diameter tubes (socks, sleeves, gloves, hats, cowls and vests), some knitters prefer using two circular needles or magic loop method instead of multiple double pointed needles to work in the round.
- Use the 6" needles for small circular projects such as mittens, sleeve openings, and leg warmers.
- Use the 8" needles for large circular projects such as sweaters, hats, neck warmers, and cowls.
