Bamboo knitting needles are a great choice for beginning knitters and any other knitters who like a warm, organic feel to their knitting needles.
Bamboo is known for its strength and flexibility, and those characteristics remain in bamboo knitting needles. Because of this, they are relatively difficult to break.
Bamboo needles are are quite comfortable to use and are good for beginners because they are not as slick as metal or plastic needles and tend not to split yarn as easily as some other types of knitting needles. They are very lightweight and smooth, helping more experienced knitters knit quickly without mistakes.
