Love these needles. After trying many different brands, Lantern Moon has been my favorite over the years. Some more expensive wood needles warp over time. And bamboo tends to shatter or simply wear out over time. Lantern Moon needles have never let me down.
Been using Malibrigo Worsted for years now. It's such a great all-around yarn! It holds up over the years, has a wonderful sheen, hangs well, and washes terrific too. If you were stuck on a deserted island with only one yarn to choose, pick a case of Malibrigo Worsted - you won't go wrong with this one for almost any general project.
