River John Needle Company. Hand-crafted Birch needles.

River John Needle Company, telephone 902 351 2889


In the spring of 2003 we started making wooden needles here on our sheep farm. You can find our needles now in many prominent yarn stores across North America & Europe.

What are the benefits of wooden needles?

Ask any knitter who knits with wooden needles. They will tell you that they are light weight yet strong, and smooth without being slippery. The stitches just glide over the needles. Our needles have a fine coating of wax, which gives the needles a little bit of a grip.

If you are a knitter and have never knit with wooden needles you are missing out on a big step to better knitting.

Remember - one natural product deserves another!
