Why You Need An Interchangeable Needle Set

The right tools are important to get the job done. For a knitter, the important tools include a means to make measurements, a good pair of scissors, quality yarn like Gems or Euroflax, and knitting needles. Don’t limit yourself as a knitter with just one needle! Consider a set, like the Kollage Interchangeables, as an investment in a lifetime of knitting happiness!

What Comes in an Interchangeable Set?

Mini Interchangeable Set

There are two options of Kollage interchangeable sets: Mini and Full. Each has an assortment of tips, cables, cable ends, the tool to change tips, instructions, and a storage case. The Mini has 7 tips (Us4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10) and 3 firm cables. The Full has 10 tips (US2 through US11), 3 firm cables and 3 soft cables.

Why use an Interchangeable Set?

Full Interchangeable SetA set can save time and help you stay organized with your supplies. The assortment of tip sizes and cord lengths are ready when you need them. Consider a time when you had to change needle sizes for a sleeve cuff or to keep your gauge even. Are you a knitter who finds that your knitting is tighter than your purling? With a Kollage interchangeable needle set, you can have two different size needle tips on one cord – so you could do your knits with a US5 and the purls with a US4!

Interchangeables are Easy to Use

Kollage Interchangeable Sets are unique for the square needle tips. The smooth finish, pointy tips, and ergonomic design will certainly be a go-to trusted knitting tool. They are also so easy to change out the tips. See for yourself in the video above.

Kollage Needles Update

Bringing Kollage Knitting Needles North

Louet North America has brought fibers, yarns, dyes, and spinning and weaving equipment to handcrafters in Canada and the United States for years. 2016 marks the beginning of including Kollage Knitting Needles to the Louet line of products. Today we’re sharing a bit more information about these needles and their journey north!

Louet Moves Kollage Needles North

The process began in June, after the TNNA Summer Show. First, Dave Van Stralen and his son Brett packed up the Birmingham, Alabama Kollage office, then went to Jacksonville pack up the machines for transport to Prescott, Ontario. It took two weeks to set up the machines in their new location, and the month of July was spent learning how to use them for needle production. On July 11, we made 250 needles – our first official day of production in the new space! – and are continuing at that pace.

Kollage dpns

We are proud to offer these high-quality tools beloved by knitters; Kollage needles are made from a lightweight, aluminum alloy with the needle size etched onto the needle shaft, eliminating the need to keep a needle gauge nearby. You’ll find that the circular needles have smooth joins (the best in the industry!) and the needle tips are sharp. Now that we have operations up and running, Sonix, Square circulars, and dpns are being made daily, and we are also updating our online inventory daily. In the coming weeks, we expect to have a nearly full inventory at the ready. Larger needle sizes, including US8 and US9, and the Interchangeables will be available in mid-September.

Kollage Circular Square needles

The square needle shape may take a bit of getting used to, but it is worth it: the square shape is more ergonomic, making it easier on the knitter’s hands to keep on knitting! You may find that your gauge is different using these needles, so be sure to swatch for your project! If arthritis has caused you to put down your needles, you’ll want to give these a try. Now through August 31, 2016, we have a special promotion on Kollage Knitting Needles. Enter KLNA1 when you order 3 or more knitting needles and receive a 33% discount on your order.  

Sonix, are in the style you typically think of for knitting needles – with a circular shaft. Also made with a lightweight aluminum alloy, these feature smooth joins, sharp tips, and has the size etched on each needle.

We’re looking forward to seeing what our friends & fans knit with these needles – be sure to share your posts with us in our Ravelry group, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Use #KollageNeedles on your project photos and we’ll be sure to see them!
