Great for suspending silk from your stretcher bars! Leaves just tiny holes that disappear once the silk is washed and ironed. I used to use safety pins and rubber bands but these hooks are better. Just don't sink them into your fingers...they are sharp!

I really like using these but wish they had come with some instructions on how to put the rubber bands on. I made it work!!

I have gone back to these hooks yet do not like the occasional hole they leave in the edge of the scarf. They also can become stress fatigued and will break at where the rubber band places tension.

These work great on a wooden adjustable frame I have and are the best on a large static frame I made myself out of one by ones. Good sharp points grasp the silk without large holes

I love Dharma Trading but I am not pleased with the quality of the product. I had high hopes for these handy little hooks. I have only used them 3-4 times and most if not all of the hooks are broken or disfigured. Given that the most recent reviews are from 2011 I suspect the quality has declined over the last few years.

I have not used these but they seem to be of good quality and a must have for the hemmed scarves. Use these with #22 rubber bands on a PVC frame.

Your goods and delivery are all excellent BUT I still await the missing screw fastening for converting my Easy Fix frame to a square. This is the blue plastic screw fitting which fits on the metal support bar and I requested it some time ago.
