These neon stitch holders sets are going to rock your knitting world.

Made from flexible silicone, they make the perfect lifelines: simply insert the tip of your knitting needle into one of the hollow ends and, making sure it’s secure, gently pull the needle off the stitches and replace it with the knit keeper cord.

This set comes with three tubes: one 150cm and two 50cm each. This means you can hold the stitches on both sleeves and the body of a garment you are knitting and use them as lifelines or to try it on as you go.

Neons are not only fun colours, they also help you see where your stitch holders are. It’s the perfect colour contrast if you happen to be knitting with a darker yarn.

There are 4 colours available in each set of silicone stitch holder cords: neon yellow, neon green, neon purple and neon pink. Other photographic accessories are not included in the sale.

How to care for your silicone stitch holder cords

Keep them away from direct sunlight as much as possible and away from sharp objects. Avoid contact with harsh chemicals.

  • Keep wool top/roving or art batts in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the fibre to avoid squishing it.
    Handle silk hankies with moisturised hands to avoid them sticking to your skin.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.
