Addi Turbo Lace circular knitting needles from Skacel are specifically designed for the needs of lace knitters. Sharper tips enable the knitter to manipulate many strands of very fine yarn (see comparison picture of the two different tips). The needles themselves are made with hollow brass with a fine resin protective coating to seal the brass and provide a hint of drag to the needle surface to allow the knitter to keep control over fine lace stitches. The coating also deadens the sound of needles hitting each other. The light blue transparent nylon cord is thinner and more flexible than standard Addi Turbos and the connection to the needles at each end is perfectly smooth and well-tapered allowing stitches to pass over the connection with no catching.
