Bamboo knitting needles have been a long time favorite among knitters all over the world.
Unlike any other material, the strong, durable fibers in bamboo make the needles light and flexible.
Bamboo that grows in Japan is especially hard and resilient, reinforced by fibers called fibrovascular bundles, giving it excellent luster.
At Kinki Amibari, we only use carefully selected naturalized moso bamboo and madake bamboo grown in Japan.
We use the outer part of the bamboo for needles, which has a lot of fibrovascular bundles.
Bamboo knitting needles with high elasticity and strength can be made by using a part with many fibrovascular bundles.
