Bryspun Knitting Needles – Your Complete Guide [2020 Update]

Bryspun Knitting Needles, also known as Bryson Knitting Needles, due to Bryson being the name of the company that makes them, Bryson Knits. Despite the name, they make notions for not just knitting, but crochet, quilting, and needlework too.

They make their needles with smooth plastic, and they’re made locally in the USA, by a New Zealand Company. It was designed to be comfortable for people who have arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or hand pain. It received an endorsement of approval by the New Zealand Arthritis Foundation.

Bryspun Circular Knitting Needles

While Bryson Knits does manufacture and sell circular needles, I couldn’t find any available online. They’re flexible needles that swivel at the join, with plastic cables and needle tips. Smooth, and affordable.

I will update this post if I find somewhere online that has them, but in the meantime, your best bet is a yarn store or similar crafts brick and mortar store. If you know of a place that has them online, please let me know in the comments.
