Katrinkles knitting needle gauges, tools and buttons are handmade in Rhode Island from woods such as bamboo, birch plywood, and alder hardwood and are as whimsical as the name suggests.
The pretty caramel toned alder is a hardwood that grows in the Northeastern United States and is sustainable, renewable and has a pretty caramel color. Katrinkles uses locally sourced wood as much as possible.
Katrinkles buttons are made of 1/8" bamboo plywood, which is sustainable, lightweight and strong. Bamboo buttons aren't indestructible, but they can withstand heavy use. They are machine washable, but we recommend hand wash and dry to prolong the life of your garment and buttons.
