Here greatly thanks for Di Childs's suggestion:
"Hello Lisa and Catherine, I have been reading your article how bamboo needles are made. It is very interesting. I was surprised that you do not say that bamboo needles can be helpful to people who have problem with their hands. My daughter and I both have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Our hands are much better if we use bamboo needles. Last winter I used metal needles and my hands were very painful. This winter I used bamboo needles and I have much less pain. I have a friend who has arthritis in her hands and she has tried some of my bamboo needles. She finds her hands are more comfortable and she is going to replace all her old metal needles with bamboo ones."
- It is very smooth.
Bamboo needles seem to glide off each other and provide for an incredibly smooth yarn feed. The more you knit with them, the smoother they become to the touch. The needlepoint, with its tapered round shape never splits yarns - makes knitting easy. And it will never hurt your hands. This is especially very important for those new knitters.

How 8Season Bamboo Knitting Needles are produced?
The building of an 8Season needle begins with selecting only the choicest natural bamboo from China. As you know, China has plenty of bamboo all over the country, especially in the North-east of China. Not all bamboo is the same. 8Season chooses bamboo from cold climates. These bamboo trees are hard and highly resistant to bending, making them most suitable for Knitting Needles. Additionally, the bamboo comes from regions with the least amount of snowfall to avoid those stems that have been bent or damaged by weight of the snow.
Young bamboos have woody fibers that are too soft, and the older ones are too brittle. 8Season selects fully matured trees and properly aged bamboo stock with uniform density and length. The trees are harvested in the winter season because it is at this time that they contain less water so as to avoid staining and molding. During the winter, the woody fibers are tighter and produce a needle with a strong density.
Bent bamboos are rejected as are those portions near the joints (nodes) or roots, as these areas contain bent fibers. 8Season used only those bamboo sections between nodes that have adequate density. The bent portions, shoots and roots of bamboo trees are discarded. The portion immediately under the bamboo surface contains tight fibers that are hard and resilient and this is the most suitable material for 8Season knitting needles.
Once the perfect raw sections have been selected, the long-nurtured 8Season manufacturing technique is employed to ensure you get the best quality bamboo needle ever! Needles are finished to accurate specifications to a uniform thickness and ultra-smooth finish. With the proper glide of the yarn, your hands won’t feel tired – even after knitting for a long time. The shape of the needle point is rounder by 8Season’s own proprietary method so they don’t split yarns, and ensure even loops for a beautiful knit finish.
These high quality 8Season needles, available in all the popular sizes and lengths will provide you countless hours of relaxing knitting. The more you knit with them, the more you’ll love knitting.
