I like the fact that the different needle sizes come in different colors of wood. Just as nice as my Lantern Moon needles, but at a cheaper price. Broke one within two days of receiving the needles and Jimmy Beans exchanged it painlessly and very quickly through their Broken Needle Exchange Policy. Thanks Jimmy Beans As usual, I can never choose the right needle length and I should have ordered the 10in. instead of the 14in. but that's my fault not the brand of needle or Jimmy Beans.
