Product Information

The HiyaHiya Knitting Needle Range

HiyaHiya’s extensive product range of knitting needles include Double Pointed Needles, Fixed Circular Needles, Interchangeable Circular Needles and our unique Interchangeable Straight Needles. Our needles and interchangeable tips are available in resin injected bamboo, stainless steel and sharp.


Bamboo: HiyaHiya’s bamboo is resin injected and is of the highest quality which means it won’t splinter or warp over time. Furthermore, it is warm to the touch which is excellent for knitters with reduced dexterity.

Steel: Our stainless-steel needles are top of the range and are hollow, which enhances the knitting experience.

Sharp: Our sharp needles are also made of stainless steel but have a much smoother end and they are noticeably sharper than steel needles which makes them perfect for lace work and finer projects.

Interchangeable Range

Interchangeable Needles: The Interchangeable range is highly extensive and versatile. Many needle combinations can be created using our Interchangeable products.

The range is unique in that it offers both circular and straight needle options which completely revolutionises the knitting experience.

Interchangeable Tips: The Interchangeable Tips are available in bamboo, steel and sharp in 4” or 5”. The components come in many sizes for you to pick what is suitable for your project.

Material Size One Size Two
Bamboo 4” 2.75mm – 5.00mm

Keyless screw-in connections ensure that the tips simply screw in to the cables to form a seamless join –  meaning no snagged yarn! Swivel Cables also prevent the tips from unscrewing and the knitted piece from twisting.

Interchangeable Straight Needles

The Interchangeable Straight Needles are sold as a pair, also including Panda Cable Stoppers. The needle shafts are made from stainless-steel shafts, which have an adjustable length from 6” to 10”, plus the length of your Interchangeable Tips which is 4” or 5” (sold separately). The small shafts fit with tip sizes 2.75mm – 5.00mm and large fits 5.50mm – 10.00mm. We also sell Tip Adapters which can be screwed onto the end of the shaft to allow large tips to be screwed onto small shafts.

Fixed Circular Range

Fixed Circular Needles come in bamboo, steel and sharp.  The tips are fixed seamlessly to the smooth, flexible cable. Measured from tip to tip, these are available from a 9”/23cm length to a 60”/150cm length, depending on the tip size required – from a tiny 0.7mm tip to a 10mm tip. The 9”/23cm Fixed Circular Needles are a great alternative to Double Pointed Needles for knitting socks, hats and mittens.

Double Pointed Needle Range

The range of HiyaHiya Double Pointed Needles also come in bamboo, steel and sharp. The bamboo Double Pointed Needles are available in 5″, 6″ and 8″ from 2.00mm to a 10.00mm tip. The steel Double Pointed Needles are available in 6″ and 8″ from a 0.70mm to a 7.50mm tip. Lastly, the sharp Double Pointed Needles are available in 6″ and 8″ from a 2.00mm to a 10.00mm tip.
