Addi Turbos

Addi Turbos are a marriage of brilliant engineering with every knitter’s dream. Addi’s breakthrough design features a hollow brass core that offers strength and very light weight; the nickel plating provides the smoothest ride possible for your stitches; and addi’s cable is the one that raised the bar for everyone – – here at last is a cable that is flexible, strong and never coiled or kinked. No wonder we all love addi’s so much.
