66 KNITTING FEVER INC. The most recent addition to Knitting Fever’s growing family of LYKKE Crafts are Cypra Copper Interchangeable knitting needle sets. Named after the Norwegian word for happiness, LYKKE Crafts combine high quality materials and thoughtful design to produce beautiful, durable, happy-making knitting needles. Handcrafted and assembled, Knitting Fever’s production routines benefit from the skilled and graceful touch of fine local craftspeople and values the opportunity to employ this growing community and embrace the natural, human pace of production. Cypra Copper Needles are made from 100 per cent copper and will acquire a lovely soft patina with continued use or if preferred, the copper needles will remain bright and shiny by using our specially- developed Copper Polishing Cloths. This add-on accessory product is a two-part system containing an inner cloth that is treated with a trade-secret formula to remove tarnish and to restore luster without scratching or removing the finish. The 100 per cent cotton outer cloth provides a gleaming shiny finish. Currently, Cypra needles are available in two stylish gift sets with a choice of either a black or brown vegan suede folio case. The 5in Interchangeable Circular set contains 13 pairs from US sizes 3-15; the 3.5in set contains nine pairs from US 3-10.5. Both sets include various cord lengths, connectors, keys and stoppers.
