    It sounded like a good deal, but I should have known to stick with a company that has a proven track record. Their ‘sturdy’ storage tube is just a cardboard tube, you can easily get the same thing from a good roll of gift wrap. The ends of the wires have raised printed lettering which catch on delicate yarn. I didn’t need a ruler, but it really doesn’t make a lot of sense to have a wooden ruler for wet blocking. I returned the item exactly as it was received and was told I would be charged $5 for return shipping, but instead was charged $11.26 (more than have the price). Will definitely think twice before making any future orders.

    This product consists of wires to weave through the edges of hand-knitted pieces, along with T-shaped pins to secure the wires into position on a soft surface. You soak and drain the pieces of knitting, weave the wire through the edges, and pin the wires out to allow the pieces to dry to the desired shape and size. This process is “blocking” and the wires are blocking wires. I pin mine to a yoga mat, a carpet, or a mattress.

    I’m happy with this Knit and Lace Blocking Wires Kit from 7GIFTS. There are 36-inch wires (twelve of them) that are quite rigid, for straight edges. I found that these wires were flexible enough for the crescent edge of a shawl. Also included are two 24-inch extremely flexible wires, which would be perfect for neck or armhole edges of sweater pieces. Finally, a wooden yardstick ruler is included for measuring your pieces during blocking.

    I know that twelve of the long wires is more than I would ever use at one time, while two of the flexible sort would not be enough to block an entire sweater or large piece with curves at one time. This, however, is my only complaint and it’s a minor one; I’ve wanted wires for some time now and really couldn’t be happier with these.

    I have never used blocking wires before, but needed them for a lace shawl I finished recently. The kit has 12 sturdy 36 inch blocking wires, two flexible 24 inch wires, a small box of stainless steel T-pins, and a wooden yardstick. They are packed in a heavy cardboard tube that has plastic caps on each end. A couple of the blocking wires needed minor sanding on the ends to smooth out small burrs, but most of them were fine. I followed the directions and the wires worked perfectly. I am pleased with this product, think it is fairly priced and happy to see it is made in the USA!
