From India, and a favourite at Loop, KnitPro makes the most beautiful and functional knitting needles and crochet hooks.
They are famous for their Symfonie Options interchangeable needle sets which are made of layered dyed birchwood. They are strong and beautiful to use. They also make crochet hooks, short knitting needles and a great set of DPNís for sock knitting from this same process
Loop also stocks their long (40cm!) nickel plated knitting needles which are incredibly lightweight and have the coloured birchwood tops distinctive to KnitPro Symfonie.
