Knitter's Pride Bamboo needles are made from bamboo grown and cultivated in Japan.
Japanese Bamboo is considered much superior to bamboo found in other parts of the world due to the unique methodology adopted in Japan for it's growth. The bamboo trees from which bamboo used for making the needles is obtained are not harvested prematurely. This allows the needles to be sturdy and strong with high density and tensile strength. The moisture content in the bamboo is controlled due to which the products do not warp easily.
