Crystal Palace Bamboo Needles Offer Superior Performance, and we have them!
There are many reasons why Crystal Palace Bamboo needles and hooks have stood out over the years. They are strong, smooth, durable and very comfortable to use.
The quality of these products starts in the bamboo forest. Bamboo is not a wood but rather a member of the grass family. It reaches maturity much more quickly than wood, which is why it is considered an ecologically-friendly, renewable resource.
The bamboo used in Crystal Palace products is specially-selected Japanese bamboo which is particularly hard and resilient, reinforced by its vascular bundles. These bundles, which transport nutrients to and from the plant, are directly related to the tensile strength of the bamboo. In fact, the tensile strength of bamboo has been likened to that of steel! It is this strength, along with special manufacturing processes, that gives CP needles their “shock-absorbency” and resistance to breakage.
After the bamboo is harvested, dried and cured, it is formed into needles and hooks in a century-old factory. The needles and hooks are processed with steam to prevent warping. They are polished with natural plant wax that penetrates the needle, adding smoothness and luster. The ends are tapered to a fine point, which are then hand-tested in cotton for smoothness.
Crystal Palace Bamboo needles- the best tools for the best craft.
