Nalbinding Needles

Nalbinding needles are used for many strands of yarn, yarn made of rag strips and yarn made from plastic strips, such as plastic bags.

Turn of the Century nalbinding needles are made of cherry for smoothness and light weight. They have rounded tips to prevent snagging and large eyes to enable use with bulky yarn and bag strips.

The thicknesses correspond to the #'s 13, 15, 16, 17 & 19 knitting needles. They range from about 3/8 inch to 5/8 inch in thickness. The Sizing Chart gives accurate measurements.

The eye on the 13 and 15 sizes is 3/16 inch wide, and 1/4 inch wide on the larger ones, and ranges from 3/4 inch long on the smallest to over 1 inch long on the largest.

The lengths range from 3 inches on the smallest (#13) to 4 inches on the largest (#19).

Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.

Price: $7 each.
