Proper storage of all Signature needles is essential to keeping your needles in pristine condition for years to come. DPNs should be stored in our DPN storage tubes and points should remain protected when not in use. We recommend our fabric storage cases for our single point and circular needles. The deep pockets on the single point cases protect the points and our circular cases keep both the cable and points protected. Needles should not be stored point down in a vase or other container that is harder than aluminum. For example glass vases, containers filled with glass or plastic, beads, stainless steel cups, etc. Placing needles in your knitting bag unprotected may result in damage from heavier objects around them.
