A Needle Keeper is precisioned to hold needles as thin as US #00 / 1.75mm and up to size US #9 / 5.5mm (both needles). Extremely lightweight, practically indestructible T6 Aircraft-hardened aluminum; pliable, sure-grip silicone cap cannot wiggle off, assuring years of continued use; hand-sanded individually for absolutely no sharp edges to damage needles or you!
The Needle Keeper not only protects your needles, but they also hold the live stitches on your needles, protects the joints of your needles (where the cable meets the shaft), protects the material 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 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.
