apparently you get what you pay for...
on 29 July 2013
at first I loved my new needles. they arrived in their cute cotton roll, seemed to cover all the sizes I'd want and I liked the non-slip texture of the bamboo (compared to my old metal ones). the only downside was the length of the tubes, which could do with being longer.
unfortunately, the tubes on the 3.5mm needles started to split on my first project with them. I covered the affected area (where the needles meet the tube) with electrical tape. that helped a bit, but the tape started to peel & stick to everything. the tape solution was unworkable on my 2nd project using the set, a pair of gloves on the 2.5mm, and the tube broke completely on the middle finger of the 2nd glove. these were for a friend's birthday and I had to rush out to buy replacements. not impressed. don't waste your money.
