Someone left a review that it felt "cheap". I disagree. I have used plastic embroidery needles in the past, and this is not plastic and does not feel unsubstantial. I like the size and had no trouble with it on my light-worsted-weight project. Perhaps for really thin yarns it might be too big, but it probably depends more on the tightness and elasticity of the stitch/yarn in question.
I love the screw-top case the needles come in. I have one for my home bag and one for my on-the-road bag. I am so happy with my purchase!
The cap has a tab with a hole at the end. I thread a coil-less safety pin through the hole and pin it to my knitting bag, which is a small denim bucket that holds a sock or shawl project. I also frequently will pin one of these into my handbag lining, because when you need a darning needle, you have it right there.
Years ago, I was able to find a translucent case, which I prefer because I can see which needles are inside. But either way, the case is very useful and it's one of those funny little things you can't do without. By the way, another tip is to take an additional coil-less pin and thread your stitch marker rings onto it, and pin it inside your knitting bag. I also sometimes take an old keychain with a split ring or a latch ring and thread coil-less pins onto it with a small tape measure or small ruler, the Chibi case, and the markers. Then I hook it onto a strap or inside the knitting bag somewhere. This keeps all the little notions handy for when you need them. Additional items you might like would be a tiny LED flashlight and a magnifying glass.
With my original purchase (Clover Chibi with Darning Needles) I wanted the needles and found out how wonderful the case was. It's small, but holds the needles I want. Plus it's brightly colored so it's easy to spot when it's not quite where I'm looking for it. The top is a nice screw on, so no unexpected pop-offs and lost needles. There is even a small loop/hole to run a thin lanyard through if desired. So, last time I wanted the needles (which were fine) but fell in love with the holder.
This time I was after a second set (I've taken to keeping some hooks, needles and yarn in various locations...sigh, what an addictive hobby this has become), so I bought these rather than repeating the other set. I REALLY love the needles--light but strong and the gold color is easy on the eyes when running through the yarn. The bent tips I found really make weaving through stitches super easy.
All in all a very nice item that makes finishing projects much easier.
I was originally put off by the finish of the needles because they were NOT shiny and smooth. It did make perfect sense to me after I tried to sewing in some slick yarn with an even slicker needle. The mat finish provides one with extra grip for both the yarn and the one holding the needle. If you're sewing in a really grabby yarn the slick needles would work better.
