Made of 100% Birch wood.

Probably the best reason, why to buy wooden needles/hooks has to do with the benefits of wood. Wood is warm, smooth and soft. It won’t drain heat from sensitive fingers the way aluminium and plastic needles do. For people with arthritis it would be impossible to knit/crochet without wooden or bamboo needles.
Birch is a superior wood for this purpose, its tensile strength and stability maintains size, resists warping and allows for smoothness of finish that no other knitting needle can provide.

Wood is our greatest renewable natural resource.
It is environmentally friendly; it’s recyclable, biodegradable and durable; when no longer required it can be returned to the earth. All wood used in Brittany knitting needles and crochet hooks come from strictly regulated forests or small woodland owners in the United States ensuring proper environmental logging practises and selective cutting for maximum reforestation.

Due to the natural material the hooks/needles may vary slightly in shade.


See below an extract of the family business for more information:

The Company

Brittany Hooks and Needles are made in America by a family of craftsmen, ensuring consistent quality and individual care. And, of course Brittany hooks and needles look beautiful.
We think you deserve the best, not just for special occasions but every time you pick up your needles.

The Brittany Company is a family business. For the past twenty five years, we have been specializing in craft tools. Being a small business has many advantages over big companies. We can give you personal and truly friendly service, and we care about what you specifically think of us and our products.
Our Commitment to the Environment

We pride ourselves in being an environmentally-minded company and try to minimize our impact at every stage of production.

We have worked very hard to develop the "greenest" packaging possible for our needles. It is made from 100% recycled paperboard and is 100% recyclable. If the label is removed it is perfectly safe to put in your compost pile. The package is as small and lightweight as possible to be efficient in shipping and thus consume less energy getting to the final customer.

We recycle everything we can at our workshop, from catalogs to containers. Office paper and cardboard are reused if possible before being recycled. Shipping material is reused from packages we receive and we only buy eco-friendly packing material - never styrofoam. The actual amount of trash we create is minimal, much less than most households. The birch used to make the needles is sustainably harvested. We try to get the other materials used at the shop in the most environmentally friendly form available.

We appreciate the natural beauty and clean fresh air of the Northern California coast where we live and work and understand the importance of preserving it and the rest of our planet.
