hard to thread sometimes, but a joy to use. Love this size, love this company, wish they made smaller still! Only brand I use now.
The needles are not made in UK. I bought them for a micro bead project and they are the only ones that will fit through the holes.
The eye broke on the first two needles while I was threading them. On the third one I was able to carefully thread it and bead for a few minutes before it also broke. I then switched to the #12 needles I bought. All four of them broke before I ever finished my project. I have been beading for 3 years and needles usually last me 3-6 months all twisted and well used. I was very disappointed in the product.
