Allstitch Studio's stitch stoppers are made from 100% natural cork, sustainably sourced from northern Portugal. They are the perfect knitting accessories to keep your stitches from slipping off your needles: sustainable, elegant, and seriously effective.
Your box includes 10 stitch stoppers (five pairs) in a range of sizes to fit knitting needles sizes.
SMALL fits US 0 - US 10.5
MEDIUM fits US 3 - US 17
The key to the flexible fit is in the oval-shaped hole — we’ve developed a patent-pending design to lock onto your knitting needles for a secure fit, while still adjusting to cover multiple needle sizes.
To Use: Simply twist the cork stopper onto the end of your knitting needle to protect your stitches when you put down your knitting, try on your garment, or pull your project in and out of your bag. When you're ready to knit again, twist the cork stopper to remove.
Why cork?Cork is a completely renewable material, harvested without ever cutting down a tree. It comes from the bark of the cork oak, which naturally regenerates after harvesting. In fact, a cork tree in the process of regrowing its bark will absorb five times more CO2 than a non-harvested tree! At Allstitch, we use premium Portuguese cork for smooth, lightweight stitch stoppers treat to work with and a sustainable choice for your knitting kit. Please note that cork is a natural product so variations in visual appearance are normal.
