What are Metal Needles?
Knitting needles are made from a variety of materials including metal, bamboo, and exotic woods. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages.
Metal knitting needles can be smooth, like Inox needles, or even slick like Addi Turbo needles. Wood needles made from bamboo or rosewood have more grip, which works well with slippery yarns like silk.
