These mango wood circular needles are the chunkiest needles we carry. Ideal for bulky and chunky weight yarns, when you want to knit something BIG or something super airy and mesh-like.
The mango wood is nice and smooth, for your stitches to slide easy but not be too slippery. The tips have a long taper to them, so that inserting the needle into your stitches is easier. And the cord is chunky and proportionate to the needles, which will keep all your stitches in tact.

These needles are perfect for beginners who are learning how to knit on circular needles. They're made for chunky yarns, yarns that are categorized as a bulky weight, like WATG's Crazy Sexy Wool. But they are also great for creating fabrics that are super airy. For example, you could knit a fun mesh garment in Drops' Brushed Alpaca yarn!
Fixed circular needles like these are very versatile. You can knit in-the-round or flat, and you can also knit smaller circumferences using the Magic Loop technique.
