This gorgeous Addi Olivewood needle is a real treat for hands that knit. Tried, tested and loved here at UtOTK, this 3.75mm needle is 80cm long and is made from fine olive wood.
The olive wood used for these needles is sustainably sourced and comes from trees that are about 150 years old and no longer bearing fruit, so making them into needles gives the wood from the tree a brand new lease of life. When I knit with the needle I often wonder about the history of the tree that produced it.
No two needles are the same thanks to the unique grain pattern in each piece of wood, and the tips are finished with natural waxes which makes them smooth and warm to handle. If you are looking for an extra special needle for your knitting, this is the one!
As with other Addi circular needles, the gold colored cable is flexible with no kinks or twists, and it also has the needle sizing printed on the cord too.
This needle would be ideal for knitting projects in a sport or worsted weight yarn, or shawls with 4 ply, fingering or sock weight yarn.
