“Takumi” The Best of Bamboo


Takumi is the masterpiece of craftsmanship that is the product of carefully selected materials along with Clover’s high quality manufacturing technology.

Finest Top Quality Material: 

  • Place of origin is limited to cold areas with little snow. Bamboo in cold areas with little snow is very resistant to bending making this bamboo most desirable for knitting needles. Heavy snow conditions result in bent bamboo.
  • Appropriately aged Bamboo is selected. Young bamboo less than 3 years old is too soft while bamboo older than 5 years is too fragile. Four to 5 year old bamboo is the most durable bamboo to use.
  • Cutting period is limited to winter Bamboo in winter has less moisture and the fiber is more compact. Moist bamboo often produces spots and mold.
  • Only suitable sections of bamboo are used. Thick bamboo with long intervals between burls is selected. Compact, hard, and strong parts just under the skin are used. Bent, burled and parts near the roots are never used.

  1. Re:Takumi needles, should I be treating them with oil or wax in between using them? I do find sometimes my yarn does not move as easily as I would like on the needles.

    Thank you,
