The Needle Keeper not only protects your needles, but they also hold the live stitches on your needles, protect the joints of your needles (where the cable meets the shaft), protect the materials in your bag, and the bag itself. You can feel free to shove your knitting and needles into your bag with no worry!
Safely carry your knitting wherever you go: on the commuter bus; at the doctor's office; during lunch; on a road trip; in your back pack; to and from class. Use them on each knitting project you have WIP (work in progress). Simply slide your needles into the black end...that's it! Needles WILL NOT come out until you take them out. Will not slip, slide, wiggle or otherwise get loose. Will not bend, break, nor get damaged. Your needles won't snag nor get tangled up on what else is in your bag.
EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT, yet practically indestructible thanks to innovations in metallurgical alloys; you (or your burly husband) cannot bend them with your bare hands, and you'd have a real hard time bending them with tools too!
There are no sharp edges to snag your yarn, fingers nor anything else. They are professionally smooth finished.
A Needle Keeper will hold up to size US #9 / 5.5mm (both needles). If you want to protect larger, use two!
