I purchased 15 sets of 6″ DPNs for $9.99. They’re made by a wife and husband in the US. The bamboo is high quality.

When I received them, I immediately cast on a headband on the #8 set. The needles dragged a bit at the beginning. But by the time I finished, the drag was gone.

Today I’m casting on socks using the #4 set.
