US size 11, 12 in long. These needles are 12 inches long. Most store bought needles are 14 inches long. The additional 2 inches caused my shoulders to hurt. I searched high and low for shorter needles and found none so I developed these wood needles. The wood is more comfortable in your hands and doesn’t get cold. It also gives you more control for faster knitting. The wood is Buffed to a smooth finish.
