I've tried the heat sealed hooks and eyes, and have found them to be scratchy on my skin, and I'm not particularly sensitive. These hooks and eyes are cut and dyed to order, so they can meet whatever need you have, and they are very comfortable to wear. I run a small zigzag around the edge to finish them off. They can be dyed to match any of our colors. Please order by the hook, so for a single set of 3 hooks and eyes, order 3. If you need a larger band, then order 4 or 5, or just get 2 for a more petite band. All hooks come with 3 eyes for 3 tightness settings.
