These precisely-machined, lace tips are made of surgical stainless steel. The size is laser imprinted on each tip. TWIST tips use ChiaoGoo Twist Red IC Cords.
Sizes 000 (1.5mm) – 1.5 (2.5mm) have a MINI [M] size join and work with MINI [M] diameter cables.
Sizes 2 (2.75mm) – 8 (5mm) have a SMALL [S] size join and work with SMALL [S] diameter cables.

Notes about cord length:
ChiaoGoo cord lengths do not include tips length in their labeling like other brands do. (i.e. To make a 16″ needle use 4″ tips + 8″ cord. To make a 24″ needle use 5″ tips + 14″ cord.)
The 5″ tips cannot be used with 8″ cord. They will not meet to form a circle.
The 4″ tips can be used with all cord lengths.
