||SUNSTRUCKFC16-sunstruck-1 US (2.25mm)
A blond twist on our ever-popular Rainbow wood needles, Sunstruck’s golden layers of laminated birch allow every stitch to be beautifully displayed on a sun-kissed finish. The smooth, burnished surface of Sunstruck needles is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of grip, which works wonders for working with slick fibers like mohair, silk, and angora. Perfect for working with dark or variegated yarns, our Sunstruck needles have the same strength and stability that you know and love - all with a lighter wood finish that provides endless hours of enjoyable knitting.
The metric sizing system is more precise than the US sizing system. We offer two US size 1 - equivalent to 2.25mm and 2.50mm and two US size 2 - equivalent to 2.75mm and 3.00mm.
The 16" needle tips are 3 3/8 inches long, allowing for an easily formed complete circle for small circumference knitting. The 24", 32", 40" and 47" needle tips are 5 1/8 inches long. Since our cable is super flexible, the Magic Loop method of sock knitting can be accomplished with the 32" needles for one sock at a time. For two socks at a time, try either the 40" or 47" needles.
