The Spin interchangeable knitting needle system from ChiaoGoo features bamboo needle tips and nylon cables. The needle tips are smooth to the touch, warm in your hand, and beautiful thanks to the darker, patina finish. These tips screw into pliant, nylon cables with swivels at the join so that once tightened with the included tightening key, they will not loosen until the key is used again. All sets come in a lovely, zippered fabric case with a green ribbon on the front. A combination ruler and needle gauge as well as a selection of stitch markers tuck neatly into the front pocket to keep your tools at your fingertips.
