An original unused box of Durex Knitting Needles.
Inside there are 12 pairs in several very bright colours.
Made of casein, a plastic made of milk protein which predates modern plastics.
I've been told these are very warm and comfortable to knit with.
Probably from the 1950s.
I have 3 boxes full in 2 different sizes
- Gauge 10 which is 3.25mm wide and 10" long
- Gauge 13 which is 2.25mm wide and 12" long
