For some time now I have been working with my beloved father on a new product. Knitting Needles made from branches.
These knitting needles are made from pruning wood of different kind of trees.
The trees used have an ideal wood, but is only cut for pruning. The tree has better growth and fruit trees give more fruit after pruning. Pruning occurs yearly to improve mostly fruit trees. So no trees where cut down for these wooden knitting needles! Due to this, this product is very sustainable.
After pruning, the branches are hand selected to mach each other by size.
They are stripped of bark en hand sanded to make them smooth enough for knitting and to keep as much detail as possible.Afterwards they are treated with a little bit of natural beeswax to preserve the wood.
These unique knitting needles can be purchased through my web shop.
