Bewitchingly beautiful

Pine needle baskets, bewitchingly beautiful and so woodsy. They are most unique, as the needles form the beauty of the basket. They are just what they were meant to be; they only claim to be pine needle baskets of modest brown and seem to say: "I am from the pine woods – simple and unpretentious. I was browned by glints of sunlight, blown about by midnight winds, moistened by summer dews and polished by wandering swains who gathered violets along the wooded trails scattered deep with the fallen straws." 800-408-5480

Dense tufts

What is a pine needle? It is simply, the leaf of the pine tree. It starts its growth in dense tufts at the end of pine boughs. It is attached to its bough by a sheath or cap. There are usually three, sometimes five sections in each needle. Pine Needles mature at three to five years.

Created equal

Not all Pine Needles are created equal, even on the same tree the needles will grow different lengths. On any given tree with an average needle length of say 10 inches, some needles will be 8 inches and others on the same tree, will be 12 inches. The average length of Pine Needles for making baskets, is 6 inches and up. This is just a general guide line, if you find Pine Needles that are 4-5 inches long, try them! Just remember that the longer the Pine Needles-the less time to produce a basket, as it takes fewer needles.
