dpn point protectors Stitch-Keepers:
Handy little protectors for double-pointed needle sets: two soft plastic caps connected by a length of elastic. They are ideal for keeping all your needles safely together in a project, protecting them from damage, or from sticking through your travel bags and into you. They also store sets of needles very neatly.
Please specify length ( S, M, or L) AND cup size ( F, R, or C). (Just like buying a bra!)
Short - Best suited to 5" glove needles.
Medium - Perfect for 6 -7" needles such as Crystal Palace.
Large - Ideal for 8" needles.
Each length comes in three cup sizes to suit the thickness of your needles:
Fine : 2 - 3 mm/ 0-3 US
Regular : 3.25 - 3.75 mm / 3-5 US
Chubby : 4 - 5 mm / 5 -8 US
If you are confused at this point: simply decribe to us the needles you wish to nurture and we'll work out the size you need!
