The combination of slightly rounded squared edges and a uniquely textured tip surface promotes positive ergonomics when in use – stimulating circulation and reducing tension. The needles sit perfectly in the hand and can be held effortlessly. This is especially beneficial to those who may struggle with grip issues such as arthritis, etc.
Like the original Rockets, Rocket Squared needles feature the longer tapered points that make sliding into the tightest or most intricate stitches a breeze.
All Addi needles are manufactured to precise metric sizes. The 2.5mm needles are labeled as US 1, and 3mm needles are labeled as US 2, but the US equivalents listed here are more consistent with other needle brands. (From US 3 and up, there are no differences.)
