Needle Profile:
Pony Pearls Single-Pointed Needles

Pony Pearls
Close-up of Pony Pearl Tip




Natural wood-based plastic; sizes US 0-8 have steel reinforcement in core.


The first thing you'll notice about these needles is their bright, trendy colors.

They are made of cellulose acetate, a wood-based plastic that feels warm to the touch and has a moderate amount of flex.

Sizes US 0-8 are reinforced with steel rods in their cores, which produce a potentially distracting rattle sound.

They have a short taper and fairly blunt tip.

"Pony pearls are my absolute favorite needles! I love the way they give a little when you knit, and the colors are nice too." apolcyn, 1/3/2002

"My favourite needles are Rhodo-Cristal by Nacre - these were made in France. These are similar to the Pony Pearl needles. I bought the ones I have many years ago. After much trouble searching for a place to buy new ones I discovered that the firm had been sold to the Pony Pearl company in India and they no longer make the double pointed needles." dapplebee, 4/16/01
