From what we understand, Kollage Needles are no longer being distributed in the United States. We honestly don't have any idea of what is going on with the company, but our guess is that although these needles are excellent, they were likely squeezed out by the popularity of Knitter's Pride line. We have a limited supply left at 45% off.
Many people like the comfort the square needles can provide - depending on how you hold your needles. It can be compared to holding a ridged pencil compared to a round pencil.
