These double-pointed needles (DPNs) are manufactured from a superior grade light weight aluminum and come in a variety of lovely colors, each of which has a silver tip. They are 15cm/6" long and come in sets of 5.
WHAT I PERSONALLY LIKE ABOUT THESE (in no particular order):
The great colors.
The fact that I can easily gather together a set and/or find a needle that has gone astray because each size is a unique color.
The sizes are laser-printed right on the needles for easy identification.
I actually knit faster with these needles!!!
Uses: socks, sleeves, hat decreases, i-cord and any other small-scale round knitting.
