About Art Viva

Art Viva is a Tasmanian owned and operated business manufacturing hand crafted wooden knitting needles, which are individually made using Tasmanian oak timber sourced from environmentally sustainable plantations. The needles are made one at a time using minimal machinery and are finished with natural, organic oils giving a satin smooth feel that is delightful to the touch. Each needle is topped with a hand painted bead with our funky trademark polka dot. Our needles are available in a range of sizes and colours. Other products include knitting needle sets and knitting kits.

Knitting Kits


Art Viva knitting kits feature a range of great looking childrens hats and some incredibly funky tea cosies. The kits are available in two forms - the Art Viva kits which include wool and pattern in a 3-sided card wrapper and the Noodle Knit kits which come packed in Chinese noodle boxes and as well as the wool and the pattern, include a pair of 5mm (US8) 20cm (8") needles. The patterns were all designed to be easy to knit and were created using 8ply yarn and 5mm needles

Needles and Storage


Why not grab a bunch of needles and get one of these great needle storage tubes as well. The needle sets come in a wide range of size and colour combinations, all packed in a sturdy cardboard 60mm (2 1/2") diameter tube. The tubes are wrapped with a range of great vintage images.
