I currently have a couple of pairs of Clover bamboo needles and I love them, but at around $7 a pair, I can't afford to have a set in every size, so this seemed like it would suit my needs.
I received my new bamboo needle set and immediately started knitting up a project on 3.25 DPNs. Over the duration of my project, the tips of the needles started to chip and eventually dull. It was unbelievable! I didn't believe how poor the quality of these needles were. I then moved my project onto a pair of circular needles. I had no problems with the tips of the needles chipping. However, eventually the cord SNAPPED in the middle of my project.
I don't consider myself a rough knitter, so there is no reason that this should have happened. I did knit something else on larger-sized DPNs and those didn't chip, so maybe the smaller ones are so tiny that they can't handle the stress? Either way, there is no excuse for the cord to snap on the circular needles!
I am really disappointed in my purchase. I am sticking to Clovers from now on because at least I know I won't ever have to replace them.
They needles arrived in clearly marked packaging and all in good shape although some of the smaller sizes were already starting to bend a bit but that is to be expected for such tiny pieces of grass (bamboo is still a grass). It would have been nice to have packaging for them or at least more than single-use plastic but for the price, I didn't expect much so I made a case for them.
I really loved that this quick easy purchase gave me all the sizes I could ever need in a single set and all bamboo so I can start practicing with the material (I've been using aluminum for years). I got the set to start knitting my first pair of socks with fingering yarn so I got right to it. The pattern called for 3.25 DPNs (#3) and I'm glad to say that they are true to gauge, I checked each needle just to make sure on my sizer.
How do they knit, you ask?
Well they work fine, the tips are fine on this size and from what I could tell they were ok on the larger sizes too but I'm used to Aluminum and bamboo tends to have slightly more rounded tips but nothing I didn't already know and expect. The problem was that one of the 5 splintered on my 3rd round! Man, that was fast! It splintered from about the middle (not from where the number is engraved but I would expect that to be a splinter-starter) and it hit my finger. I pulled the splinter off but the end kept snagging yarn so I took a file to it and smoothed it out a bit. I don't personally have a problem with doing this but if the needles had been made properly there would not be any fiber ends in the middle of the needle to cause splintering at all.Read more ›

A MUST BUY for those who knit in the round. I love cap/hat projects, but didn't have all the sizes in double-point (DP) needles. Boye & Bates do NOT carry sizes above 8. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Judy Bernat

These needles are not the best, but I wasn't sure what length DPNs I wanted, what material DPNs, if I even liked DPNs or if I wanted to stick with circular and these were great for... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Caroline Murphy
Great for the price. Each size comes in a cheap plastic cellophane bag, that's marked with the size. All of those are then in a much better plastic bag with a snap closure.Published 2 months ago by Tonya
These are decent, if not the fanciest needles, they at least showed me I don't care for DPN's, but they are GREAT for cabling. Read morePublished 3 months ago by A Davenport
