Great range of needle sizes, let down a little by quality
on 4 February 2013
For the price, this is an excellent value set of double pointed needles for knitters, offering 5 needles per size as advertised - it's a comprehensive range of sizes for most projects. Length is as advertised, so they are ideal for slightly heavier/bulkier projects. May be a bit cumbersome for smaller projects like gloves and socks. The finish on these is slightly rough - so not smooth like the more expensive individual sets of bamboo needles, but it's not a deal breaker as they function perfectly well, and haven't yet snagged any of my yarn. I haven't had them long, so can't tell about any durability issues. The carry case is made of cotton, and is great to keep all the needles tidy. Set arrived in very good time - so for value, delivery and usefulness, this rates a 4 star review. Lost one star because of the lack of a really smooth finish on the needles.
