16" ChiaoGoo Premium Stainless Steel Red Lace Circular US#1.5 (2.5mm)
We are particularly fond of these 16″ (40 cm) Knit RED LACE line of surgical stainless steel circulars. They have a smooth, satin-sheen finish that keeps your lace yarn from slipping off too fast. While it is marketed as a "lace" needle, we prefer it for all our projects. The cord is memory-free, multi-strand, steel cable coated with red nylon allowing yarn to slide right over the join. This cord will never snap up into your way. Needle size is permanently laser imprinted on each circular. The joins are just spectacular! The tips are sharp without being too sharp.
