A family business, Brittany knitting needles and crochet hooks are made in the USA from sustainably harvested birch. These finely crafted wooden tools are hand finished and exactly sized. They are not only beautiful to look at but feel warm and smooth in your hands and are a pleasure to work with. They do all the manufacturing which ensures consistent quality and individual care. Being a small family business they can give you personal and truly friendly service, and care about what you specifically think of their company and products. Brittany products have never been sold in any chain or big box store. They believe it is important to support “small businesses” for a variety of reasons. Among them are that they better represent their products and can give customers a better service. Also, local businesses are more likely to give back to their community and that is always something Brittany can get behind. If you don’t have a local yarn shop you can walk into there are many that sell online and/or have mail order catalogs.
