NEW Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Sets

We just got the new Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Sets and they are LOVELY! I’m seriously feeling extremely enthusiastic and looking forward to see what they make next.  Please note, these needles are SQUARE shaped, which many people find extremely comfortable (some find them easier to use, I’ve always found them enjoyable). Hopefully an interchangeable round needle set will be forthcoming too?

Anyway, these are the things I love about the Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Set:

  • The needles are Beautiful. They’re smooth, elegant, a gorgeous medium grey aluminum.
  • The size markings are ETCHED in the needle, so they won’t be going anywhere.
  • The cables/cords are extremely pliable.
  • The needles can rotate once they are connected to the cables.
  • The join is quite smooth (at least on the ones I tried)
  • The case for the FULL set is GREAT! It’s sturdy and extremely well made. It has space for a second set of needles (presumably for when they come out with a set of shorter tips?), as well as two large clear pouches for more cords (so you can see what you are looking for), and another zipper pouch on the outside of the case. The case along could easily retail for at least $50.
  • The case for the MINI set is lovely. It’s pretty, slim, well made, and easy to use.
  • The Youtube video (see below) on how to connect and disconnect them is clear and easy to follow.

I recommend watching this video before diving into your Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Set, their system is kind-of novel.
