Comments about Rosewood 5.5"" Double Points:

I'm a knitter that prefers working with wooden needles almost without exception. It's a zen thing, I just like the feel of wood in my hands and the way wood changes over many uses.They become your needles. These little ebony needles have a wonderful feel to them and they make the most delicate socks.They are however a very fine needle and if not protected in your knitting bag, will snap like a twig. I have had it happen so I ordered extra for that reason.

    Comments about Rosewood 5.5"" Double Points:

    I can't recommend these needles. I bought them on a whim because they were on closeout, but a couple inches into knitting a sock with the #0 needles, one broke! I contacted WEBS and they sent me a replacement needle, but another broke shortly after. I've used other #0 wooden needles that were much stronger than these (I've never had a dreamz dpn snap!).

    Service and delivery comments:

    I CAN recommend WEBS! Their customer service was fast and helpful, products never arrive damaged or poorly packed, and they sent a replacement needle right away. I will continue to buy from this site.

    Comments about Rosewood 5.5"" Double Points:

    I really like these needles, but after working with them for a while I noticed that one was a slightly larger diameter than the others. I think my set has one size 2 instead of all size 1's. Not a major issue, but a little upsetting because otherwise these are great needles.
