The addi Bamboo Click system provides eight different sizes of addi Bamboo tips (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, and 8.0mm), three different lengths of the new, extremely pliable blue cord (24, 32 and 40), and one connector piece which helps to either store stitches or combine your cords.
The Click tips require no tools to change; simply insert the cord into the tip, twist and release. The tips will remain secure until you change them thanks to the Clicks revolutionary locking mechanism. Like all of Addi Click's sets this one comes with a Lifetime Guarantee from the manufacturer.
Bamboo needles are a great choice for a few obvious reasons, as well as few that might not be so obvious!
Typically, bamboo tends to be a lighter weight and they don't seem to slip in your hands as much as metal needles. This means less strain on your hands and more time spent comfortably knitting.
The porous wood grain holds stitches, without catching on small strands; this aspect makes them perfect for beginning knitters or more difficult projects. You're much less likely to drop stitches and wind up... all wound up!
It may seem like a silly thing to mention, but these needles are quieter! The classic "click-click-click" of aluminum or plastic needles might be disturbing to others if you frequently knit in public areas. Have a sleeping child (or married to one)? These might be a simple solution to an audible inconvenience.
Finally, these needles are eco-friendly. Being made of bamboo, a renewable resource, they make less of an impact on the environment than needles made completely of plastic or metals.
There are a variety of different knitting needles available and while the choice, ultimately, will amount to personal preference these are just a few reasons that bamboo makes a good addition to anyone's repertoire.
