Product Details
Brand: The Haberdasher Bee
MPN: 214424039

The Haberdasher Bee's contrast knitting needles are carefully crafted sustainably sourced wood. With rosewood shafts and steamed beech tops, they have a touch of class while remaining practical and functional. Whether you're knitting a simple scarf or a complicated sweater, at 25cm long these needles are the ideal length for most projects.

As wood is a natural product, the grain and colour ensures no two needles will ever look identical - rosewood varies in colour from firey reds to almost black, while beech can vary from a light cream to a rich biscuit colour. Please note however that I can't guarantee what colour variation you may receive and I'm not able to look through the stock for specific colours.

Wood feels lovely to work with, plus it's also a fantastic material for people with arthritis and other hand mobility issues to use, as it's warmer and more pliant than aluminium while also being more forgiving to your hands.

The Haberdasher Bee is a sustainable haberdashery supplier and shop. It is currently one of the only sustainable haberdashery stores online in the world, supporting clients including everyone from large crafting companies and craft sample developers, to small family businesses and solo crafters.

About The Haberdashery Shop

Owned by myself, Leanne (you can find out more here), I’m also naturally interested in sustainable haberdashery supply, design, natural dyes and I’m currently building a profile as a sustainable crafts blogger. When I’m not in the studio, I’m probably roaming the wild with my husband, or snuggling up with some homemade goodies and our equally wild(ish) cats. As a small business owner, I appreciate your support as part of a community of independent crafters, designers and suppliers who are also making the change and helping the world to go plastic-free.

The Haberdasher Bee store is made for, and inspired by, the knitters, sewists, crocheters and home crafting communities, as well as the wider textiles market. I also have blog posts across the rest of the website geared specifically for you.

Finding inspiration on The Haberdasher Bee blog

As well as the haberdashery shop, I hope to inspire people to make things in a more sustainable way. Everything that I write for this site including my knitting blog posts, crochet blog posts, sewing blog posts and dyeing blog posts are all available freely. After searching for sustainable haberdashery tools myself – and finding that they were too expensive or poorly made – I decided to try and fix the problem myself by building a business around it! That’s why the sustainable tools supplied here are made to last, and designed to be plastic-free!

I am also active on social media. The Haberdasher Bee is active on Instagram and Pinterest mostly, and also on Facebook from time to time. If you’d like to contact me for any bulk sustainable haberdashery order, you can do so here.
