the custom needle gauge

What’s a needle gauge?

Knitting needle gauges are a tool to measure the size of knitting needles. The size of a knitting needle is important for working with knitting patterns. It effects the tension of your knitting – how tight or loose and how big or small your knitting will be.

No more plastic!

Knitting needle gauges by Pumora are made from cherry or zebrano wood. In the workshop they are cut and lasered one by one. Then the needle gauges are polished by hand and oiled with precious camelia oil.
