The needles come in a nice case and are good quality. The price is great for the assorted sizes and so glad it comes with what it does! For a new felter or antiqued, you will be pleasantly surprised!
Bought this set a year ago and it's been fabulous! I love the 36 gauge needle. They come in a nice plastic cylinder. I have felted hundreds of items in the past year and have only have had one needle break. I highly recommend them.
