TULIP CarryC Interchangeable Bamboo Knitting Needle Set
Tulip's beautiful bamboo interchangeable needle set has exceptionally smooth joins to ensure that yarn does not get snagged, and the specially designed rotary cable join prevents twisting while knitting. The needle tips have an excellent taper and can be easily attached to and removed from the cable without using a tool; their unique technology means that they will never loosen while knitting. Best of all, this set contains all of the accessories you might need for your knitting projects. The CarryC set contains shorter needle tips, making it ideal for circular knitting (see cable lengths below).

Founded in 1948 in Hiroshima, Japan, Tulip is a family-run business that started as a manufacturer of finishing needles. In 1953 they began to produce and export crochet and knitting needles for the handcraft industry and have since gained a reputation for high-quality craftsmanship. Today Tulip is run by the third generation of the Harada family, and their reputation for quality endures. Tulip strives to maintain the excellence demanded by the most discerning needlecrafters. As they put it, they have “an almost stubborn obsession with quality.” We're proud to support another family-owned business and to make this exceptional product available to our customers.
"When I first tried Tulip bamboo needles I was a devout metal needle user and I had never found any wooden needles that were as smooth as I would like. This all changed when I tried the Tulip CarryC needles; both the needle and the cables were the smoothest I had experienced and the lightness of the needles themselves immediately made me feel less fatigued when knitting. I had problems with other interchangeable where the needle would frequently separate from the cable but this has NEVER happened with a Tulip interchangeable needle. In addition, the swiveling nature of the cable prevents the torqueing and stress on the hands that I normally experience with knitting in the round and I found my knitting experience more relaxed and pleasant than ever before. I am often working with many sizes of needle at once and I take my knitting wherever I go; the thoughtfulness of everything included in the set is exactly what I need to work comfortably and efficiently at home or when traveling. It really is like they thought of everything."
"Being a 37-year veteran of metal needles I was really impressed at how my hands and wrists didn't hurt after being asked to try these bamboo needles. Even though the bamboo has more drag I was able to knit for longer periods of time with zero discomfort. The quality of the chords and the needles themselves are absolutely amazing. I have not had any disconnection with them at all. This is incredible since I’ve tried every interchangeable needle imaginable, from affordable to the most expensive, and these are the only needles I've used that have never come apart."
