Biodegradable DP Knitting Needles

Biodegradable DP Knitting Needles

These are brilliant!!! From the website: Biodegradable Knitting Needles in faux (FAKE) Tortoise Shell! Casein needles are the tortoise-shell knitting needles of the future. These needles are made out of a natural organic protein polymer which is non-toxic to make! Talk about some green knitting going on!! These needles feature hand tapered tips, which are polished to a glass-smooth finish, allowing the yarn to slip easily for quicker knitting. They have the perfect blend of flexibility and rigidity to create a firm, comfortable knitting needle that allows smooth effortless knitting. Being a non-thermo plastic it is non-static, thereby eliminating "fluffy" knitting. Due to the nature of these needles, they are perfect for knitters who don't like the cold touch of metal as they are smooth and warm to the touch yet flexible and strong enough for the most demanding knitters. Perfect for knitters who want something a little different than wood. I have a set of each size and absolutely adore them :) Double Point Timbergrain Needles Size: US 3 or 3.25mm Length: 7" (What is Casein? Casein means 'protein of milk, the basis of cheese" and is a dried milk product often used in high protein dietary foods. It therefore comes from a naturally renewable resource and is biodegradable, thus being a totally environmentally friendly product.)
